Ecological factors associated with sexual risk behaviors among detained adolescents: A systematic review


  • Voisin, Dexter R.

Adolescents who have a history of being detained report rates of STI that are 8 to 10 times higher than peers without such histories. Over the last decade, an increasing number of studies have identified multiple factors that are associated with STI risk behaviors and acquisition among detained youth. However to date, no reviews of this literature have been conducted, which is the aim of this paper.
