The problem of juvenile delinquency affects all of society. The high recidivism rate and the steady increase in juvenile crime suggest the importance of an effective juvenile justice system. This paper provides an analysis of the juvenile justice system using psychological theories of punishment. Based on this information and interview data obtained from professionals working with the juvenile justice system in Helena, Montana, alternatives for rehabilitation were proposed.
