dc.description.abstract We used data from Ohio’s Behavioral Health Juvenile Justice (BHJJ) initiative to examine whether location and social context were important aspects to measuring ETV. Ohio’s BHJJ initiative is a statewide diversion program that provides community-based treatment to juvenile justice-involved youth with behavioral health issues. As part of the program, treatment providers and juvenile courts have participated in extensive data collection that has provided evaluators and the state a wealth of information on the program’s effectiveness as well as the youth’s behavioral health needs. For this study, recently published in Criminal Justice and Behavior, we examined self-reported ETV in 2,124 BHJJ youth. Exposure to violence is so prevalent in juvenile justice-involved youth that understanding this phenomenon in this population is critical to reducing the likelihood of their continued involvement with the justice system.
