Youth on the Street: Abuse and Neglect in the Eighties.
Kufeldt, Kathleen; Nimmo, Margaret
Child Abuse and Neglect: The International Journal, v11 n4 p531-43 1987
Interviews with 489 runaway and homeless youth (often victims of abuse and neglect) identified two groups: (1) "runners," who leave home intending not to return and (2) "in and outers," who run away as an impulsive temporary coping mechanism. Risk of engaging in illegal activity increased with distance and time away. (Author/VW)
