Continuum of sanctions is an approach for ensuring the appropriate type of treatment and/or punishment option is selected to increase the likelihood of successful rehabilitation for juvenile delinquents. Compose an essay of 500 – 700 words that explains the concept of a continuum of sanctions as a means for administering treatment and/or punishment options for juvenile delinquents. Provide specific examples of different types of treatment and/or punishments and where they would reside on a continuum of sanctions scale. Also, discuss why reasons why a juvenile offender might be moved up or down the continuum of sanctions scale. Directly quoted material may be used, but will not count towards the minimum word count. Be sure to support your response with cited scholarly resources as required by APA. A minimum of three (3) resources in addition to the course textbook must be used when composing your response.
