The Friendships of Delinquents.
Marcus, Robert F.
Adolescence, v31 n121 p145-58 Spr 1996
Reviews research on friendships of delinquents and nondelinquents. Contrasting theories and research have pointed to both the distinctiveness of delinquent friendships and the commonality with normal friendships. Greater conflict, poorer attachment quality, lesser ability to repair relationships, cognitive distortions, and poorer social-cognitive problem- solving characterize delinquent friendships. There is little support for the superior quality of delinquent friendships. (KW)
