Saner, Hilary; Ellickson, Phyllis
Journal of Adolescent Health, v19 n2 p94-103 Aug 1996
Examines the risk and protective factors for different types of violent behavior in high school adolescents. Major risk factors include gender and deviant behaviors, committing nonviolent felonies, academic failure, and lack of parental affection and support. As risk factors increase, the likelihood of violent behavior increases. Impaired parental relationships affected girls more than boys as a risk factor. (GR)
