Abstract

A problem yet to be acknowledged: The ‘systems abuse’ of children in out-of-home-care and the criminal justice system in Australia.
This presentation explores the involvement of children in out-of-home care in the criminal justice system in Australia, with a specific focus on the role and consequences of systems abuse—such as ‘care-specific trauma’ and ‘care-criminalisation’—in turning children from vulnerable adolescents into criminals.
