Application: Risk Factors and Coping Skills for Juvenile Victims
Many behaviors can increase an individual’s risk of victimization. For example, if you leave your car doors unlocked, you might become a victim of burglary. The act of leaving your car unlocked does not mean you were responsible for or to blame for the burglary, but it is a behavior that increased the likeliness of the burglary. This also applies to juvenile victims. Many behaviors can increase juveniles’ risk of victimization. Disaffected (rebellious) youth often challenge authorities and disobey rules. The behaviors these youths demonstrate can increase the likelihood of them becoming juvenile victims. Once victimized, it is important for juveniles to have the skills necessary to overcome victimization.
For this Assignment, you consider behaviors of disaffected youth that might increase the likelihood of juvenile victimization. Also, you consider the impact of resilience and coping skills on overcoming juvenile victimization.
The Assignment (2–3 pages):
- Describe two behaviors that may be demonstrated by disaffected youth, and explain how each might increase the likelihood that the youth become juvenile victims.
- Explain how the use of resilience and coping skills may help a juvenile victim overcome victimization.
- Explain why some juvenile victims may grow up to be more adjusted than others.
