In a paper of 8 – 9 pages (not including title, abstract, and reference pages), demonstrate your understanding of best practices in ethical research from the literature by constructing your own set of recommendations that would help graduate student researchers comply with APA ethical guidelines and avoid common mistakes and shortcomings of conducting research with human subjects. Include in your recommendations ways of ensuring the safety and security of participants as well as protecting participants’ confidentiality and the confidentiality of their data. You may write your recommendations as bullet points, as long as you elaborate on each bullet point to demonstrate your understanding of ethical principles and practices, APA ethical guidelines, and ways of protecting participants in research studies.
Finally, apply your set of recommendations to your proposed research study. What kinds of ethical issues might you face if you were to undertake this study? What kinds of protections might you need to put into place to ensure the confidentiality and protection of your study participants?
Support your arguments with references to at least three different scholarly articles (academic journal articles) in addition to any required course readings you reference. Include title, abstract, and reference pages in your paper.
o question that the BCJJC is the better place to hold young people charged as adults. However, for those youth who stay at the facility for many months and those who will face significant barriers to reentry once released, many stakeholders felt that more could be done in detention to equip those young people with new skills and tools that the can use when they return to the community. There are programs doing this in detention at the present time. For example, Baltimore Youth Arts works with young people in detention to provide mentorship and skill-building in artistic and creative expression while at the facility and upon a young person’s release. However, almost all stakeholder interviewed on this topic felt that more could be done to make more productive use of young people’s time in detention, particularly those youth who are charged as adults. There do seem to be opportunities to introduce new and more structured and intentional skill-building programs focused on youth who spend longer lengths of time at the BCJJC. For example, the Cook County Juvenile Temporary Detention Center in Chicago, Illinois, has created a barbershop within its facility where young people work under the supervision of professional barbers and have the opportunity to learn their barber’s license while at the facility. Young people in other facilities also have opportunities to participate in other licensing and credentialing programs, such as ServSafe and OSHA 10-hour courses, that can provide helpful certifications to young people upon release when looking for employment opportunities. Key Recommendations 1. Policy and Process a. As recommended above, BPD should implement policy and protocols that minimize the unnecessary in-custody arrests and transport of young people to the BCJJC, such as a remote screening process, which would limit the number of young people who are transported to the BCJJC altogether and limit the number of youth who should be screened for detention. b. BPD should consider implementing the Massachusetts Screening Tool for Law Enforcement (MASTLE): an objective, validated screening instrument that is designed to assist police officers in making the decisions identified above. The MASTLE can be accessed for implementation at no cost. Limited training and technical assistance from the tool’s developer, the National Youth Screening and Assessment Project, may also be available to su>GET ANSWER
