Turner, William L.; Ruble, Nikki M.
American Journal of Family Therapy, v28 n2 p117-32 Apr-Jun 2000
Looks at the organization of street gangs and suggests that some of the same concepts used to describe family systems may be applied to them. States that the complex organization of gangs forms a web of interconnectedness, and that in order to provide effective intervention plans, gangs must be viewed from a systematic and holistic perspective.
