Cashwell, Craig S.; Vacc, Nicholas A.
School Counselor, v44 n2 p105-14 Nov 1996
Examines how family functioning influences an adolescent's interpersonal style, which in turn, influences peer group selection. Data were gathered on 111 adolescents with no known previous delinquent behavior. Findings support a modified version of coercion theory. When considering interventions, school counselors should recognize familial factors, interpersonal style, and peer group as predictors of delinquency. (KW)
