Sagatun-Edwards, Inger; Saylor, Coleen
Child Abuse & Neglect: The International Journal, v24 n7 p925-37 Jul 2000
This longitudinal study of social services and juvenile court files identified factors associated with court outcomes for drug exposed infants (N=118). Regression analysis suggested that mothers' compliance with court orders was the major predictor of court outcomes although chi square analysis found ethnicity, past referrals, and criminal record also associated with court outcomes.
