Family Environment as a Predictor of Adolescent Delinquency.
Matherne, Monique M.; Thomas, Adrian
Adolescence, v36 n144 p655-64 Win 2001
The relationship between family environment and delinquency was assessed with 9th grade students (N=127) who completed the Family Adaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scales and a version of Self-Report Delinquency Scale. Results suggest the relationship was moderated by whether the family had traditional or nontraditional living arrangements. Family cohesiveness predicted frequency of delinquency for nontraditional families. (JDM)
