Bruce StoutBruce Stout is Executive Director of the Violence Institute and the Behavioral Research and Training Institute and a Clinical Assistant Professor in Robert Wood Johnson Medical School’s Department of Psychiatry at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ). In this capacity, he oversees two institutes dedicated to researching the causes and prevention of violence and other behavioral health problems. Additionally, both institutes offer training and technical assistance in implementing research validated best practice programs and services. Prior to joining UMDNJ, he was Executive Director of New Jersey’s Juvenile Justice Commission, the agency responsible for operating secure care, residential, and day programs for court-committed youth. In that capacity, he administered several block grant programs for delinquency prevention and remediation and brought New Jersey into compliance with the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act. Prior to being confirmed by the Senate in this position, Bruce was Deputy Chief of Policy for New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman. With responsibility for criminal justice, substance abuse, economic development, and science and technology issues, he was intimately involved in Governor Whitman’s efforts to expand treatment programs for addicted offenders. Bruce designed the Governor’s drug court pilot project, which utilizes the coercive powers of the court to keep carefully screened non-violent offenders in treatment. He was also the Governor’s lead staff person on the juvenile justice reform initiative, which has supported community-based prevention and early intervention programs and services while refocusing State efforts to respond to violent and repetitive juvenile offenders. This reform initiative created the Juvenile Justice Commission, which he went on to lead. Bruce holds a doctorate from Rutgers University. Before joining the administration of Governor Whitman, he was a faculty member in the Administration of Justice Department at Pennsylvania State University.
