Practitioners in the fields of Social Services and Probation are concerned with the growing number of adolescent females involved in the judicial system. The judicial system struggles to find ways to lower recidivism rates in their detention centers and treatment facilities. The field of youth development helps by exploring options that increase self-concept and empower the adolescent female to make healthier choices. Wilderness Therapy provides the opportunity to increase self-concept as well as an alternative strategy to incarceration and out-of-home placement.
