Journal of Primary Prevention, v22 n4 p389-407 Sum 2002
This study offers a critical review and analysis of the Social Development Model and social control theory in delinquency. Results show that attachment and commitment to parents, school, and peers is associated with delinquency for both boys and girls. Parental attachment and commitment play a stronger role in female delinquency, while alienation plays a stronger role in male delinquency. (Contains 28 references.) (GCP)
