We have used Urie Bronfenbrenner's "the Ecology of Human Development" as our main theory and the conceptions labeling, participation and the key terms adversity and protective environment to analyse and comprehend the material. We found that all eight youths were satisfied with the probation service and the help they had received. Partly as a result of the verdict and intervention, many of the youths had made positive changes in their lives. Several of them had changed their friends, as well as made new plans for their future. A common fear that the youths expressed was their concern that the verdict would have a negative influence on their future labour market. (Less)
