Child Maltreatment Seriousness and Juvenile Delinquency.
Doerner, William G.
Youth and Society, v19 n2 p197-224 Dec 1987
Methodological flaws have spoiled the literature that attempts to link maltreatment to juvenile delinquency. This article presents improved definitions and measuring procedures for maltreatment and delinquency. The empirical findings show that certain types of child abuse and neglect are related to delinquency but that other types of maltreatment are not. (VM)
