Logan-Greene, P., Tennyson, R., Borja, S., & Nurius, P. (2017). "Adverse Childhood Experiences, coping resources, and mental health problems among court-involved youth. Child and Youth Care Forum.
The present study uses a commonly delivered assessment tool to examine mental health problems (current mental health problem, mental health interfered with probation goals, and suicide ideation) as a function of an expanded set of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs; childhood maltreatment, family dysfunction, and social disadvantage). Adaptive coping resources–impulse control, aspirations, and social support–were tested as both direct contributors and moderators of the influence of ACEs on mental health.
