Differential Familial Abuse Profiles and Physical and Sexual Abuse Experiences among Serious Violent Juvenile Sex and Non-sex Offenders

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



Abstract:

Sexual abuse is considered to be a developmental risk factor for sexual offending; however, the process underlying this relationship remains unclear. While numerous studies have examined abuse histories in juvenile (sex) offenders, few have considered abuse in familial histories beyond the youth themselves. The aim of the current study was to examine physical and sexual abuse experiences of serious and violent young offenders and their families. Interviews were conducted with 482 incarcerated youth in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Using latent class analysis we examined associations between familial physical and sexual abuse histories, physical and sexual abuse experiences of the youth, and the likelihood of committing a sexual offence in adolescence. Two familial abuse profiles (a high abuse group and a low abuse group) were highlighted in the overall sample. Logistic regression analysis indicated a general relationship: familial abuse profiles were predictive of youth physical and sexual abuse and a higher likelihood of committing a sexual offence. However, these abuse profiles differed between juvenile sex offenders and juvenile non-sex offenders. These results are discussed in the context of theoretical explanations underpinning the transmission of abuse and their relevance for treatment.
