PREDICTORS OF ADOLESCENT RUNNING AWAY BEHAVIOR
Abstract:Adolescent boys and girls (N = 246) took part in a study of societal, personal, and interpersonal correlates of running away behavior. Correlational analyses showed the behavior to be related to low self-esteem, depression, suicidal ideation, negative stress, alcohol and drug use, truancy, and dissatisfaction with received social support. Multiple regression analysis identified suicidal ideation, alcohol use, dissatisfaction with social support, and truancy as salient predictors.
