Förutser upplevelsen av våld mellan föräldrarna ungdomars kriminalitet? (Swedish)
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.

Abstract [sv]

Barn som exponeras för våld mellan föräldrarna och/eller misshandel har en högre risk för att utveckla kriminellt beteende. Den föreliggande studien undersöker detta problem med hjälp av sekundärdata bestående av 150 ungdomar i åldrarna 12-18 år. Alla deltagare i studien fick behandling mot alkohol och/eller drogproblem på en behandlingsklinik vid tillfället. Studiens resultat föreslår att kriminalitet hos ungdomar med alkohol och/eller drogproblem är associerat med att bevittna föräldrars skador och sexuella tvång utöver att vara offer för misshandel. Våldsamt beteende mot andra är associerat med att bevittna föräldrars sexuella tvång men inte relaterad med någon av de olika variablerna för misshandel. Implikationer från den föreliggande studiens resultat diskuteras.
