Dornbusch, Sanford M.; Erickson, Kristan Glasgow; Laird, Jennifer; Wong, Carol A.
Journal of Adolescent Research, v16 n4 p396-422 Jul 2001
Examined whether attachments to family and school reduced five forms of adolescent deviance (smoking, drinking, marijuana use, delinquency, and violent behavior). Found that adolescent attachments to family and school reduced overall frequency, prevalence, and intensity of deviant involvement, regardless of community context, gender, or ethnic group. School attachment predicted lower initiation of deviant behavior but not its intensity. (Author/KB)
