Abstract

VioLit summary:

OBJECTIVE:
The objective of this article by Malmquist was to provide an overview of adolescent sexual offenses and their causes.

METHODOLOGY:
This is a non-experimental overview of adolescent offenses, including definitions of offenses and sexual disorders, and their causes. Topics reviewed are: legal perspective of adolescent sexual offenders, psychosexual disorders, common sexual offenses, violent sexual offenses, and sexual activities with adults.

FINDINGS/DISCUSSION:
In this overview the author suggests that adolescent sexual delinquency may result from experimentation, or involvement with adults.

AUTHOR'S RECOMMENDATIONS:
The author states that, "Increased understanding of patterns of adolescent sexuality, and particularly abnormal sexual activity, enables the family physician to identify youths at risk of committing violent sexual offenses and to aid in their prevention by counseling these adolescents and their families."
