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



Abstract:

The present study investigated whether violent and nonviolent female juvenile offenders differed in mental health symptomatology upon entry into juvenile detention, corrections, and intake probation. To screen for mental health symptoms, the Massachusetts Youth Screening Instrument - Version 2 (MAYSI-2) was used and administered via the MAYSI-2 software, MAYSIWARE. This is the first study conducted with a national MAYSIWARE database. Data were obtained from 63 sites across the United States. Youth were compared by offense type, age, race, and MAYSI-2 Caution scores. The study found that violent female offenders were significantly more likely than nonviolent female offenders to score above Caution on the Suicide Ideation (SI), Depressed-Anxious (DA), and Angry-Irritable (AI) scales. Recommendations for juvenile justice staff are given.
