Laburpena: Although the study of Criminal Justice includes Juveniles, this inclusion is sketchy at best. The practioner may think that Criminal Justice and Juvenile Justice overlap, but Juvenile Justice is obviously missing from, or an add on to, most traditional Criminal Justice programs. Few would argue the difference in the psychological makeup of juveniles and adults, yet this difference is addressed to only a minor degree in such classes as "Juvenile Delinquency". A doctoral degree specifically established to target Juvenile Justice forms the foundation of the study of juvenile crime and its inherent problems. Such an academic discipline naturally begs a unique psychological emphasis, one with a crime-reduction paradigm. The investigation of Juvenile Justice, in order to function effectively, must include the interaction of psychology with law and the legal juvenile system; explanations of juvenile delinquency, juvenile crime, and juvenile aggression -- especially from the viewpoint of psychological theories; and knowledge of the cognitive and personality development of youth as it pertains to aggression in various life stages. This paper will explore the rationale behind the design of a joining of Juvenile Justice and Psychology into one efficacious and synergistic union.
