Application: Risk Factors and Coping Skills for Juvenile
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.
