Does Placement Matter? Understanding Adult Criminality among Maltreated Children

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



Abstract:

Survivors of childhood abuse and neglect are substantially more likely to engage in delinquent and criminal activities than their non-maltreated counterparts. One of the hypothesized reasons for this relationship in prior literatures has been the negative effect of out-of-home placement on maltreated children's abilities to form prosocial bonds. From a social control perspective, a lack of attachment and bonds to legitimate socializing agents will lead maltreated children to engage in future delinquent and criminal acts, as they feel less bound by moral restraints and are less sensitive to the expectations of society. The present study will examine the relationship between child welfare placement and adult criminal outcomes; and how this relationship varies by race, gender and socioeconomic status, while also controlling for deleterious familial characteristics and prior childhood behavioral outcomes, arguing that the long-term consequences of maltreatment compounded with home removal will last into adulthood. Results indicate partial support for the deleterious effects of out-of-home placement on adult outcomes and suggest possible policy implications for child welfare agencies.
