When Research and Clinical Assessments Disagree: Prospectively Predicting Juveniles’ Adjustment to Incarceration

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



Abstract:

Researchers and mental health staff rely on people to accurately self-report their feelings and behaviors in order to make interpretations/predictions about their behaviors. However, contexts such as incarceration can heighten concerns about disclosure. Specifically, the present study compared a mental health assessment administered by staff to one administered by researchers to evaluate the level of disclosure. Participants were 268 newly incarcerated serious male adolescent offenders. While disclosures to either administrator were comparable, the differences in administrators were linked to different behaviors and mental health symptoms over the course of two months of incarceration.
