Volume 3 Issue 2 Article Published


We are pleased to announce the release of a paper by Jessica Elsom on inner speech modification and young offenders. We'd like to acknowledge Jessica for her outstanding contribution to the learning component of the BSUJ through supporting and training transitioning reviewers and executives through the publication process. Jessica argues for the importance of change in the ways youth experience treatment, moving away from punishment models toward humanistic models highlighting the impact of inner speech in maximizing growth. We invite you to read, share, and comment on this literature review on her publication achievement.

Thank you to our team at the BSUJ and MRU for the support and commitment to open-access publication in undergraduate education.
