Blurb/Shorttext:
This book examines the relationship between education, employment (participants'' & parents''), frustration, self-esteem, parent-child attachment, and exposure to violence on juvenile delinquency. Participants included 100 African-American (50 delinquent and 50 non-delinquent) males and females between the ages of 14-18. The delinquent participants were selected from the Division of Delinquency Prevention Program, while the non- delinquent participants were selected from several inner-city high schools. All participants completed the HARE Self-Esteem Scale (HSS), the Family Relationship Scale, The Violent Victimization Survey, The Rosenweig Picture-Frustration Study, and a demographic questionnaire. Chi square, Analysis of variance, and Logistic regression were used to analyze the data. Significant differences were found between education, employment, and parent- child attachment on juvenile delinquency. Implications and recommendations for future investigation and policy were discussed.
