Whitbeck, Les B.; Hoyt, Danny R.; Ackley, Kevin A.
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v7 n4 p375-92 1997
Studied relationships among physical and sexual abuse in family of origin, participation in deviant subsistence strategies, and victimization in 108 runaway and homeless adolescents in four Midwestern states. Path analysis indicated that abusive family backgrounds directly affected adolescent victimization and indirectly increased likelihood of victimization by increasing amount of time at risk, deviant peer associations, and risk taking.
