Abstract

Five cases are presented in which a homicidal adolescent`s abrupt loss of control was associated with a change in his interpersonal relationship with the victim, together with a sequence of events progressively more unbearable and less amenable to his control. The authors suggest criteria for assessing the adolescent's potential for homicidal behavior within the family. A history of parental brutality is a significant consideration.
