Study focused on attitudes towards institutional authority among three groups of adolescents: nondelinquents, noninstitutionalized delinquents, and institutionalized delinquents. Relationships with self concept were also investigated. Findings indicated that attitudes towards parents, teachers, police, and the law were, in general, positive with nondeliquents being more positive than delinquents. (BF)
