The primary objective of this paper is to demonstrate the efficacy of using the Survey of Organizational Functioning–Criminal Justice (SOF-CJ) instrument in a juvenile setting. Although the SOF has been used with the adult population, this is the first study that has examined the adaptation of SOF-CJ to the juvenile environment. The piece includes a literature review, a test of instrument validity, and results from a study from four secure-care facilities operated by the AZ Dept. of Juvenile Corrections.
