Youth Maltreatment and Gang Involvement.
Thompson, Kevin M.; Braaten-Antrim, Rhonda
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v13 n3 p328-45 Jun 1998
Examines whether physical and sexual maltreatment raises the risk of gang involvement among secondary school students. Findings show that maltreatment increases the probability of gang involvement, independent of demographic factors. When youth are physically and sexually abused their odds of gang involvement are four times higher than those who do not experience maltreatment. (Author/MKA)
