An Examination of Youth Protective Factors and Caregiver Parenting Skills at Entry Into the Child Welfare System and Their Association with Justice System Involvement

This study sought to distinguish youth in the child welfare system who became involved with the justice system from youth who did not become involved with the justice system based on the youth's protective factors and their caregivers' parenting skills. This was done by examining the differences in the total number of youth protective factors and the total number of their caregivers' parenting skills at entry into the child welfare system based on justice system involvement.
