An Empirical Examination of Competing Theories in Predicting Recidivism of Adult Offenders Five Years after Graduation from Boot Camp.
Benda, Brent B.; Toombs, Nancy J.; Peacock, Mark
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v37 n2 p43-75 2003
Five-year follow-up study of recidivism of male graduates from adult boot camp examined the competing theories in predicting recidivism among these males. Findings indicated that elements of social learning theory are among the strongest predictors of recidivism. Differential peer association and normative definitions are the two top predictors. Implications of these findings for revisions of theory are discussed. (Contains 96 references, 5 tables, and 1 appendix.) (Author)
