Searching for Connection: A New Look at Teenaged Runaways.
Schaffner, Laurie
Adolescence, v33 n131 p619-27 Fall 1998
Runaway behavior is presented from the point of view of 26 teenagers in a rural New England shelter. Reasons for running include seeking freedom from abusive treatment, and a search for connection. Running was found to be a "last resort" behavior. Many youths expressed the desire for reconciliation. (Author/EMK)
