Secure Care in Scotland, a scoping study

This scoping study, written by CYCJ’s Kristina Moodie, is designed to help identify evidence gaps regarding the outcomes experienced by children and young people placed in secure care in Scotland.

By examining the literature and interviews with secure care providers multiple questions were raised, including: how should baselines be measured; what constitutes a positive (or a negative) outcome; when should these outcomes be measured; should it be on leaving the unit or examining where the young people have reached years down the line; and how can reaching an objective be attributed to any particular intervention or placement. This report seeks to address some of these issues.
