Abstract

Adolescence is a period of transition from children to adults. This period is very vulnerable to the influence of the outside world. One of the problems that often arise in adolescence is delinquency. The term juvenile delinquency refers to a wide range of behaviors, ranging from socially unacceptable behavior, offences, to criminal acts. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of child maltreatment in childhood and the tendency of juvenile delinquency during the period of adolescence. Participants in this study were late teens aged 18 to 22 years who experienced child maltreatment. There were 55 participants who were chosen using purposive sampling method. A measurement scale was utilized which was a translation of the Subtypes of Antisocial Behavior Questionnaire (STAB) developed by Burt & Donnellan (2009), consisted of 32 items and the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire (CTQ) by Rahma et al. al., (2018) to measure the experience of child maltreatment. This study utilized a regression quantitative approach with SPSS for windows 26. The results showed that child maltreatment had an effect on juvenile delinquency with t-value of 2.646 p<0.05. A review of developmental psychology, the most related dimensions of child abuse are provided as additional analytical data.
