There are six educational measures that may be imposed on juvenile offenders:
- A reprimand
- Instructions and prohibitions (with 11 different possibilities)
- Supervision by a social welfare agency (Centre for social work)
- Committal to an educational home
- Committal to a juvenile correctional home
- Committal to an institution for physically or mentally handicapped youth
Three of the six educational measures are carried out in the juvenile’s existing home environment (nonresidential), while the last three measures include taking the juvenile out of the environment deemed detrimental toward the youth (residential). Courts are restrictive in using the latter form: in over 85 %> of cases one of the first three listed measures is applied, meaning the juvenile remains at home (See Table 19.4).
