Frank, Susan; Quinlan, Donald M.
Journal of Abnormal Psychology, 85, 5, 505-10, Oct 76

Psychologically, these behaviors can be viewed as acting on impulses in ways prohibited by prevailing social norms. Examines the possibility that female delinquency represents an impulsive mode of organizing experience. (Author/RK)
