Challenges of conducting empirically-rigorous intervention and evaluative research in juvenile correctional facilities: Suggestions for the field.

 
Jolivette, K. (2013). Challenges of conducting empirically-rigorous intervention and evaluative research in juvenile correctional facilities: Suggestions for the field. Journal of Correctional Education, 64, 37-50.

This conceptual manuscript describes the challenges of conducting research per field-specific research guidelines in juvenile justice facilities, both non-secure and secure. The author details the barriers of such research as cited and experienced by other researchers, offers facilitators to such barriers, and calls on researchers to continue their investigations by designing high-quality and rigorous studies as well as being prepared for the barriers to occur. This manuscript is included to provide insight to both researchers and agencies of potential barriers with facilitators so that more empirical investigations, such as FW-PBIS or individual tiered practices, can be evaluated.
