Ebrahim Sadeghzadeh Ghanati, Shirin Asadi
Abstract: Child and adolescent delinquency is an undeniable reality in the world that requires a special approach in all areas of society by a specific legal and judicial system. The criminal policy of discriminating and specializing in the criminal law of children is aimed at departing from the purely criminal view and resorting to a reformed, reproductive and preventive approach in line with the achievements of today's human society. Clinical criminology, by considering the offender's personality and the environment around him, considers the causes and risk factors of the offender and ultimately aims to correct, treat and re-socialize the offender. Equality oversight recommends those measures. Therefore, the criminal justice system for children and adolescents should, at all stages, benefit from the clinical criminology to return to the normal cycle of social life. Personality filing, which contains the opinions of various medical, psychology, and criminology specialists, is needed along with the criminal record to take appropriate action considering the child or adolescent's character.
