Abstract [en]

Children exposed to intimate partner violence (IPV) and/or maltreatment have a higher risk for developing delinquent behavior. This study examines these problems using secondary data which consisted of 150 adolescents in ages 12-18. All participants received treatment for alcohol and/or drug use at clinic centre at the time. The result suggests that delinquent behaviors in adolescents with substance use are associated with witnessing injury and sexual coercion among parents above and beyond being a victim of maltreatment. Violence against others is associated with witnessing sexual coercion among parents but is not related with none of the adolescents victimization variables. Implications of the presents study's result are discussed.
