Is Child Maltreatment a Leading Cause of Delinquency?
Schwartz, Ira M.; And Others
Child Welfare, v73 n5 p639-55 Sep-Oct 1994
Explores the now popular assumption that delinquency is primarily caused by child abuse and neglect. Notes that existing studies are inconclusive or provide weak connections at best. In light of public concern over juvenile crime, calls for more funding to explore strategies to prevent and control serious juvenile crimes, especially violence. (TJQ)
