Youth incarceration: A look behind locked doors
Tick-talk: Crime and Consequences Student Conference (Douglas College, March 20, 2019)
Douglas College and the New Westminster Museum collaborated to host the Tick-Talk: Crime and Consequences Student Conference, which featured criminology students' presentations on a variety of crime, justice, and social issues. Adopting a fast-paced presentation format, students raised key issues and challenges, described personal experiences, and disseminated unique ideas in a public forum. Presentation topics included the right to legal representation, the over-representation of Indigenous peoples in Canada’s criminal justice system, youth justice policy, and connections between mental health and criminal justice. The conference also included several discussion sessions that generated valuable dialogue among students, academics, practitioners, and members of the public. --- Rebecca Lambert presented on youth incarceration and the reality for troubled youth within Canada's youth criminal justice system. Lambert argued that incarcerated youth are not being adequately prepared for reintegration, and called for appropriate disciplinary measures, transition and reintegration programs, and further resources to help incarcerated youth develop personally and professionally.
