Coll, Kenneth M.; Juhnke, Gerald A.; Thobro, Patti; Haas, Robin; Smith Robinson, Megan
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v16 n4 p359-363 2008
This study investigated the differences among youth offenders for family engagement (as measured by the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scales--III) and conduct-disordered behaviors (as measured by "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders" [4th ed., text revision] criteria) by means of the Youth Comprehensive Risk Assessment. Results indicated significant differences in conduct-disordered behaviors between youths with less familial engagement compared with youths with more family engagement. Resulting implications for counselors are included. (Contains 1 table.)
