A qualitative study of female juvenile offenders’ experience with revocation to a detention facility was conducted. Ten female youths were interviewed about their experiences at the detention facility and with revocation. Through a grounded theory qualitative analysis of structured interviews, themes were identified and a theory developed. Categories include precipitating environmental stressors, positive and negative effects of being in the juvenile justice system, risk factors for revocation, and protective factors reducing revocation.
