Youth Victimization 2 Abstract For many years there have been different forms of abuse to the youth. From physical abuse to sexual assault, these youth have been victims of abuse in many ways. The abuse itself is not the only abuse these youth have to deal with. The after effects of the abuse is just as bad as or worse than the abuse itself. 2

Youth Victimization 3 In 1995, the “Youth Victimization: Prevalence and Implications” report was created. This report was created by the National Survey of Adolescents (NSA). This survey interviewed 4,023 adolescents from the ages of 12 to 17 to find information about substance abuse, use, and dependency. This survey was also to understand delinquency behaviors as well as family history from the previous year. This study is about boys and girls of white, black, Hispanic, Native American, and Asian. ( National Institute of Justice (NIJ), 2003) The “Youth Victimization: Prevalence and Implications” report discusses four types of violence the NSA found. These violent crimes were sexual assault, physical assault, physically abusive punishment, and witnessed violence.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
