Personal and Social Characteristics Associated with Perceived Likelihood of Success in Incarcerated Youth
Marsh, Shawn C.; Evans, William P.
Residential Treatment for Children & Youth, v27 n4 p304-313 2010
This brief report presents a study undertaken to explore the association between youth perceptions of personal and social characteristics within correctional programs and perceived likelihood of success on release. Surveys were administered to 543 youth committed to select facilities in 4 Western states. Results indicate low levels of anger expression and a strong sense of program belonging were related to more positive future forecasts for both males and females. Further, high relationship quality with an important staff member and strong social support were related to more positive future forecasts, but only for males. (Contains 1 table and 1 note.)
