Physical Health Prognosis in Aolescence and Young Adulthood Among Female Juvenile Offenders

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examined physical health and medical problems among a population of incarcerated girls (N=141) in adolescence and young adulthood. Physical health problems, engagement in health-risk behaviors, and victimization were extremely common among this sample. Results demonstrated a dose-response relationship between severity of childhood victimization and poor health outcomes, with evidence that health-risk behaviors in adolescence mediated the association between childhood victimization and poor health in young adulthood. Clinical and policy implications related to the high morbidity risk among female juvenile offenders will be discussed.
