Does Having a Relationship with a Significant Adult Reduce the Risk of Delinquency for Maltreated Children?

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



Abstract:

Studies have consistently found that individuals who are abused and neglected in childhood are at increased risk for engaging in delinquent behavior during adolescence. However, the mechanisms linking child maltreatment and delinquency remain largely unknown. Drawing from the literature on resiliency and social support, this presentation examines whether the presence of a significant adult in a child’s life acts as a mediator and/or moderator in the relationship between child maltreatment and delinquency. Children with documented cases of physical and sexual abuse and neglect of children (ages 0-11) between 1967 and 1971 were matched with non-maltreated children and followed into adolescence and adulthood. Assessment of the presence of a significant adult was assessed during 1989-1995 in the context of in-person interviews. Delinquency (up to age 18) was assessed through searches of law enforcement records to obtain official arrest information and self-reports of criminal behaviors. Statistical analyses will involve tests of meditation and moderation. Findings will contribute to understanding the impact that a relationship with a significant adult may have on the risk of delinquency for maltreated children, and implications of these findings will be discussed.
