The Effect of Risk and Resilience Factors on the Prediction of Delinquency in Adolescent Girls.
McKnight, Lela Renee'; Loper, Ann Booker
School Psychology International, v23 n2 p186-98 May 2002
Describes two studies conducted with samples of adolescent girls to determine whether resilience factors could distinguish at risk characteristics as delinquent or non-delinquent. Resiliency was shown to determine delinquency levels. Suggests that intervention programs designed to remediate the effects of risk factors should include components that help girls develop academic competence, increase academic involvement, and create positive perceptions of self.
