Synopsis: This study examined predictors of depression and antisocial behavior outcomes for 414 youth with comorbidity in the juvenile justice system. Baseline strengths and risk behaviors had the greatest influence on outcomes, independent of other areas of need. Additionally, substance abuse problems, poor family functioning, lack of supervision, and school behavior problems at baseline each were significantly and uniquely associated with negative outcomes. Findings support a strengths-based, systems-of-care approach to the assessment and treatment of juvenile justice-involved youth.
