|dc.description.abstract||The Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) has a long history of identifying adolescents who are at risk of displaying delinquent behaviors. However, MMPI research regarding behaviors observed from adolescents while incarcerated is nonexistent. Furthermore, codetype patterns specific to incarcerated female juvenile delinquents is nonexistent. This paper examines the usefulness of the adolescent version of the MMPI (MMPI-A; Butcher et a1., 1992) in predicting specific unit infractions for female juvenile delinquents incarcerated in a state facility in Texas. Treating MMPI-A scales as continuous and dichotomous (i.e.,  65 T) variables, regression analyses were conducted to examine whether specific critical incidents (i.e., assault on staff or peers, self-injury, and escape) could be predicted by MMPI-A scales. Analyses indicate that specific MMPI-A scales may be useful in predicting specific unit infractions.||en_US|
