The purpose of this study is to gain understanding into the effects that juvenile offender treatment facilities have on the nurturance of protective factors leading to resilience in juvenile offenders. This research study looks into juvenile offenders self-perceptions of factors associated with resilience during an intervention program. It breaks resilience into two categories, traits shown to be associated with resilience, known as internal traits, and protective factors shown to lead to resilience, known as external traits. Data on these two categories were obtained through offender self-report. In order to collect information on the resilience levels of those within their programs, the Research unit of the San Bernardino County Probation Department will give three separate questionnaires to wards in a juvenile offender residential program as part of a longitudinal study.
