Abstract

The authors studied the first 88 adolescents boys who were placed on the secure unit of a correctional school during an 18-month period and found that 52 (59.1%) of the boys had previously received psychiatric residential treatment or psychiatric hospitalization. The authors hypothesize that many of these boys may have been transferred from a psychiatric setting to a correctional facility during adolescence when long-standing aberrant behaviors became more threatening to staff. At present the number of psychiatric hospital beds is decreasing and the criteria for hospitalization of children are becoming more stringent. The data indicate that correctional facilities are now expected to function as psychiatric treatment centers for disturbed adolescents no longer welcome in therapeutic settings.
