Iatrogenic Effect of Juvenile Justice
| Cataloged on:
Sep. 08, 2009
The risk of being involved in a juvenile court intervention and the long-term effect of that intervention are examined. "The results show that youths who are poor, impulsive, poorly supervised by their parents, and exposed to deviant friends are more likely . . . to undergo intervention by the Juvenile Court, and that this intervention greatly increases the likelihood of involvement with the penal system in adulthood" (p. 991).
