ABSTRACT. The theory that I shall seek to elaborate here puts considerable emphasis on the link between child welfare status and persistent offending, the function of constant child harm in offending, and the concrete risks related to violent offending and with psychopathology. This study makes conceptual and methodological contributions to the link between childhood physical maltreatment and ensuing violent and criminal conduct in juvenility, the function of psychopathic attributes in the phase of crime inception of juvenile offenders, and the pervasiveness and complements of psychiatric disorders among young delinquents while they are developing.
