Neglected and Delinquent Children.
Sabatino, David A.
This report summarizes the mass of information dealing with delinquent and neglected children. The first chapter discusses characteristics that identify neglected and delinquent youth with an emphasis on social and emotional maladjustment. The second chapter reviews cultural and environmental factors related to delinquency. The author investigates the effects of maternal deprivation, institutionalization, and affective neglect in terms of the quality of mothering provided. In the third chapter, the author evaluates 16 instruments used in the diagnosis and assessment of delinquent behaviors. Behavioral modification, behavioral conditioning, interventions within the public schools, and institutional token systems constitute behavioral management treatments applied to neglected and delinquent youth as discussed in Chapter Four. Chapter Five describes current models of educational management, and the final chapter delineates implications and suggestions for work with neglected and delinquent children. (Author/LAA)
