Focusing on the Steinberg & Scott (2003) article( attached below) , what issues in
the justice process cannot be resolved by looking at

understanding developmental processes better inform juvenile
justice practice and policy? How so?
3. Thinking about all of the readings collectively, what are the most
important points to be drawn from these readings?
