This discussion will focus on the impact of youth incarceration in the Hudson Valley. The discussion builds on the recent release of the book Trapped in a Vice: The Consequences of Confinement for Young People (Rutgers University Press, 2018) by Dr. Alexandra Cox, formerly of SUNY New Paltz, and which explores the consequences of a juvenile justice system that is aimed at promoting change in the lives of young people, yet ultimately relies upon tools and strategies that enmesh them in a system that they struggle to move beyond.
