At-risk populations
english

Individuals who are exposed to multiple risk factors that increase the likelihood that those individuals will commit delinquent or criminal acts (Wilson, 2000). Other definitions of risk include the higher probability of having negative developmental outcomes, difficulties in social adaptation, academic success, and mental health (Trudel and Puentes-Neuman, 2001).
