Adolescence, v35 n137 p181-92 Spr 2000
Tests the degree to which the Child and Adolescent Functional Assessment Scale, a mental health assessment tool, predicts recidivism among juvenile offenders. It was found that the scale was significantly related to recidivism. The practical application of the results as well as the value of emphasizing research on dynamic predictors that enable policy makers to target at-risk juveniles are discussed. (Author/MKA)
