This event is part of the Research-in-Progress Webinar Series, which enables investigators whose awards are in-process or completed to share their work and disseminate findings rapidly, and to identify others with related research interests.
This particular event discusses the research of a team led by Texas A&M University that will use a randomized trial to test the effectiveness of the Transformative Justice (TJ) program in reducing criminal justice recidivism and improving health outcomes by coordinating health and social services for justice-involved young adults. The program will assign a multi-sector case management team to individuals following their arrest for lower-degree felony offenses, connecting them to mental health, legal assistance, education, employment training, transportation, and housing services.
