General Deviance Syndrome: Expanded Hierarchical Evaluations at Four Ages from Early Adolescence to Adulthood.
McGee, Linda; Newcomb, Michael D.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v60 n5 p766-76 Oct 1992
Problem behavior theory predicts that norm-violating attitudes and activities reflect syndrome. Findings from community sample revealed that criminal behavior was more determined by general deviance in adulthood than in young adulthood, whereas sexual involvement became less determined by common factors between these times. Drug use and low social conformity were consistently strong indicators of general deviance. (Author/NB)
