Summary

This bulletin is intended to raise awareness of the magnitude and gravity of adolescent maltreatment and to provide information on public health program and policy interventions. A review of adolescent victimization, with a focus on vulnerable youth, provides background for the development of public health measures to promote prevention and ensure recognition and early intervention for treatment of adolescent abuse and neglect. Two sources for information about adolescent maltreatment are the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System and National Incidence Studies of Child Abuse and Neglect. Information is provided about sexual victimization, links between abuse and adolescent sexual behaviors, the juvenile justice system, and adolescent responses to victimization. A public health framework for addressing adolescent maltreatment is outlined, with 10 specific steps to build programs and policy. (Contains 146 references.) (SLD)
