Subject:Re: [DKIM Failure] Foster Care and Prisoners [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

In Australia, we have data from two separate jurisdictions that are relevant. The following is a quote from a forthcoming publication: "An example of the overlapping vulnerabilities is the fact that 72% of children and young people in the Queensland youth justice system were already known to the child protection system (QCPCI 2013). Similarly, Cashmore (2011) demonstrated the strong link using NSW data." (Higgins & Davis, in press, p. 4) References: Cashmore J 2011. The link between child maltreatment and adolescent offending: systems neglect of adolescents. Family Matters 89:31–41. Viewed 22 February 2014, >. Higgins, D. & Davis, K. (in press).
