Desistance From Crime CoverThis publication from the National Institute of Justice, aims to bridge the gap between researchers and practitioners; provide a better understanding of how desistance is conceptualized, measured, and applied; and help the field develop innovative ways to increase the use of desistance-focused approaches.

In addition, experts discuss how to better incorporate a desistance-focused approach in criminal justice practice, policy, and research and the potential benefits and challenges of doing so.

Experts will also examine how desistance is defined and measured and outline strategies and approaches that facilitate an intentional application of desistance-centered principles into practice.
