Are All Mental Health Issues “Treated” Equally by Empirically-Based Youth Risk Measures? Recommendations for the Clinician and Researcher

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



Abstract:

There is an often unacknowledged gap between the factors addressed within empirically-based youth risk assessment protocols and the significant mental health needs of youth in the justice system. This issue is further compromised by potential gender biases in risk assessment and prediction. Based on a thorough analysis of the existing literature, the current paper highlights the existing gaps in adolescent risk assessment with particular attention given to the gender biases and mental health needs found in youth in the justice system. Recommendations to address these issues within clinical practice will be provided along with necessary directions for future research.
