Restorative Justice
The Clackamas County Juvenile Department is committed to the philosophical principles and values of Restorative Justice. Restorative Justice is focused on balanced support and meaningful outcomes for youth offenders, crime victims, and the community.

Skills Group Program
The Skills Group Program provides group facilitation of cognitive skills development for the youth of Clackamas County.

Anger Replacement Therapy (ART)
Aggression Replacement Training is designed to provide youth with skills on what to do in anger producing situations while making the arousal of anger a less frequent occurrence. In ART, youth will be provided with the skills to learn to use self-control in a conflict and recognize and respond appropriately to their physical and emotional reactions in heated situations.

The Boys Council
In this structured environment, youth participate in group activities which provide an opportunity to: learn to make positive choices; express ideas; work as a team; and strengthen resiliency. The Council encourages understanding, critical thinking, pride and unity in an active environment where youth can share at their own pace and building on each member?s individual strengths and unique capabilities.

Girls Circle
Girls Circle is designed to: foster self-esteem; help girls maintain authentic connection with peers; counter trends toward self-doubt; and allow for genuine self-expression. When girls voice their ideas and opinions in a safe environment, it strengthens their confidence and encourages them to express themselves. By examining cultural expectations in a safe and supportive setting, girls gain greater awareness of their options and strengthen their ability to make choices that are consistent with their values, interests, and talents.

Individual and Community Empathy (ICE)
Based on restorative justice principles, Individual and Community Empathy encourages youth to: take responsibility for their choices; look at preventing future harmful or illegal behavior; understand harm done to others; acknowledge their victim(s); and make a commitment to their community to repair harm they have caused. Youth are also exposed to community partners who enable youth to see themselves as valuable members of the community while showing community members that they are capable of making positive contributions.

Independent Living Program
Independent Living Program (ILP) is intended to provide youth with the necessary skills and information they will need to transition from living with their parents/guardians to living on their own. In a group setting, youth will be guided through demonstrations that include accessing financial aid, searching and applying for employment, as well as setting goals and building routines in their everyday lives. Youth will practice making a budget, brainstorm a meal plan, and maintain their personal calendars. Participants will also gain knowledge on local resources and be guided through the process of accessing these resources. As a result of the four classes, youth compile a resource manual that they will take with them so they can access the information as they need it through their future journey.

SAFETY: Adolescent Fire Safety Education
Safety is designed as a tool to increase awareness of fire safety. Youth with fire setting offenses learn to eliminate and/or redirect their fire setting impulses. With the use of restorative justice principles, youth address the importance of taking responsibility and being accountable for their choices. Through completion of a final project, youth are able to examine influences and thinking errors involved with their offense and set goals which encourage a path of positive behavior.

TruThought: Charting a New Course
TruThought: Charting a New Course is a cognitive skills development group which addresses barriers in thinking. This corrective thinking process will use the knowledge of these barriers to implement responsible thinking steps. Through group discussion, role plays, and group and individual activities youth will learn skills to stop the tactics, change their thinking, and stay on TRACK.
