    Juvenile Justice Services, Family-Child ResourcesFamily-Focused Intensive Aftercare Program is a customized approach for the juvenile probationer and his/her family. The program addresses the very significant problem that juvenile probationers in residential facilities often considerably improve their behavior while in the structure of the facility, only to lose their gains once they return to an environment that does not have such a structure. The goal of the Family-Focused Intensive Aftercare Program is to successfully reintegrate the probationer into the community, utilizing the program to bridge the structure and behaviors gained in residential placement to the probationer's family, community, and daily life. Social Skills/Anger Reduction Group assists youths who are first-time offenders to develop the skills necessary to control their anger. Participants attend 10 weekly group sessions, which focus on learning the anger cycle, identifying the stages of anger, and practicing the techniques of appropriate anger management.YorkFamily-Child ResourcesFamily-Child Resources
