All participants of the present study are juvenile delinquents ruled by the court to lodge at residential community-treatment facilities. They were forced to leave their familiar environment to receive proper treatment at said facilities that were totally strange to them. The drastic change did impose huge pressure on the youth who ran afoul of the law. Despite the pressure, these juvenile offenders would receive appropriate and sufficient career planning and employment training at the facilities for a healthier development, which not only enhanced their adaptability and the willingness to get employed, but also prepared them to return home strong and lead an independent life on their own.
In order to address healthcare issues related to the aging society, the Taiwanese government has launched the Long-Term Care 2.0 program (henceforth “LTC”) to provide services for the aged and the disabled. Researchers argue that the said juvenile delinquents, after being properly trained, could make multiple contributions to the community-based LTC services network and would eventually grow as capable employees. The present study is a qualitative research based on data collected from interviews of three juvenile delinquents who used to work for a specific LTC institution while serving their term at a residential community-treatment facility for more than six months. This study purports to look at the transformation of the participants from three main aspects. For starters, the study investigates how their LTC service experiences might have influenced their career planning and later developments; In the second place, the study examines the shift in the participants’ attitude towards the values and meanings of life; Finally, the study provides an overview of how the residential facilities have employed the resilience theory to encourage the juvenile offenders to serve at LTC agencies as a means to improve their relationship with their families as well as to enhance their capabilities regarding interpersonal communication and social skills.
Findings show that, after completing their treatment/training and returning home, all participants have learned to actively confront and overcome any adversities or challenges they might encounter in workplaces or in life, rather than escape from them as they usually did before. The LTC service experiences enabled them to realize the true meaning of life and to fulfill the values of their existence. This study also identifies the benefits of applying the resilience approach by residential facilities to assist juvenile offenders in two aspects. First, their relationship with their original families has been improved; Secondly, they have acquired interpersonal communication skills sufficient to enhance their awareness of respect and sympathy when dealing with other individuals, making it easier for them to be accepted and supported in a social community.
