Abstract

Book Review Marcy K. Rowland Family-Based Reintegration: Effective Interventions for Juveniles on Parole El Paso, TX: LFB Scholarly Publishing, 2009. 169 pp. $60. ISBN 978-1-59332-371-4 SAGE Publications, Inc. 201110.1177/0734016810384387 ErikaGebo Suffolk University, Boston, MA, USA Author Marcy K. Rowland presents a solid case for effective juvenile aftercare that addresses the needs of both youth and their families in an evidence-based approach. Her book is a process and outcome evaluation of one such approach, functional family parole (FFP), which is based on the principles of the model program, functional family therapy (FFT). FFP was implemented throughout the state of Washington in 2002. Her study is the first evaluation of the effectiveness of this inter- vention for juveniles released from institutions in that state. She argues that FFP can be an effective intervention if implemented with fidelity and if the appropriate youth are matched to the program. Family-Based Reintegration is organized as a traditional research study. There are five chapters in the book. The first chapter identifies the scope of the problem, using recent statistics about the number of juveniles in the justice system and the lack of success for many interventions for juveniles returning from residential or institutional placements.
