Burket, Roger C.; And Others
Journal of Adolescence, v17 n1 p41-52 Feb 1994
Examined inpatient medical records of 157 consecutive adolescent admissions to private psychiatric hospital. Ten patients with interest in witchcraft and Satanism had significantly more diagnoses of identity disorder, alcohol abuse, and hallucinogen abuse. One-half reported history of self-mutilation. Found no significant difference in criminal behaviors between those with and without interest in occult. (Author/NB)
