Publication in project: Development of probation service



The training course was organised by Citizens' Watch in 2003 with the financial support of Nordic Council of Ministers. It was aimed at professional training of social workers who will provide social support to children at risk as crime preventive measures, at different stages of justice administration and after-care.

The teaching book contains articles on sociology, deviant behaviour and children's psychology, specially written for the training course by leading Russian experts. It also includes information on civil and criminal law with regard to youth crime, and a survey of best practices in Finland and Denmark, provided by the course trainers.
