    This dissertation investigates the applicability of the Goods Lives Model of rehabilitation to juvenile sex offenders. This is achieved through the studying of a range of literature from key academics such as Tony Ward, Shadd Maruna and Abraham Maslow, in conjunction with primary research: the interviewing of two practitioners. Through these interviews and the literature this study has shown that social relatedness, community and excellence in work and play are of paramount importance when applying the Good Lives Model to juveniles. Ultimately, this study has found that the model has the potential to be implemented successfully to juvenile sex offenders, however, alterations such as changes in terminology must be made first. Through combining the Good Lives Model with the ideas presented in Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, whilst taking into consideration the viewpoints of the interviewed practitioners as well as the literature, a basis for a new model has been established (GLM-J). This stipulates that for the Good Lives Model to be applied to juveniles, it needs to incorporate systematic stages and include more accessible and relevant language. The GLM-J aims to lay the foundations for future research into this field.
