1. Miranda, Ana Raquel Pereira. Fatores preditores do comportamento delinquente em jovens adultos na comunidade Portuguesa .

Degree: 2015, Universidade do Minho

A delinquência é uma problemática com influências na qualidade de vida dos jovens e da sociedade que os rodeia. Poucos são os estudos em Portugal que abordam os preditores de delinquência na comunidade. As investigações sugerem que existe um leque diversificado de fatores preditores de delinquência, entre eles, salientam-se ser do sexo masculino, ter história de vitimação e de psicopatologia. O objetivo deste estudo é identificar os comportamentos delinquentes autorreportados por jovens adultos da comunidade portuguesa e alguns fatores associados, nomeadamente o sexo, experiências de vitimação e sintomatologia psicopatológica. Participaram no estudo 207 jovens adultos portugueses, com idades entre os 18 e os 26 anos (M = 21.7 DP = 2.788), que responderam a instrumentos de autorrelato: Questionário Sociodemográfico e Comportamental, Questionário da História de Adversidade na Infância e Inventário de Sintomas Psicopatológicos. Os resultados revelaram que 53% dos participantes relatam pelo menos um tipo de comportamento delinquente. Ser do sexo masculino, e mais experiências de vitimação e mais sintomatologia psicopatológica está associado a maior probabilidade de comportamento delinquente autorreportado. Estes resultados sugerem a necessidade de intervir em fatores de risco como a vitimação e psicopatologia, especialmente nos rapazes, promovendo intervenções mais eficazes no combate à delinquência. Advisors/Committee Members: Maia, Angela (advisor).

2. Eastin, Jennifer Flood. Impact of Absent Father-Figures on Male Subjects and the Correlation to Juvenile Delinquency: Findings and Implications.

Degree: 2003, University of North Texas

This study was predicated on the belief that a father brings something unique to the family, thus, making irreplaceable contributions to the life of a child. Fathers are unique in that they provide something different from mothers. They are irreplaceable because when they are absent, children are said to suffer emotionally, intellectually, socially, and behaviorally. The contributions of fathers to a child's well being cannot be fully replaced by better programming, ensuring child support programs, or even by well-intentioned mentoring programs. A review of literature relevant to delinquency and adolescent behavioral and academic success revealed that there may be a correlation between a male role-model and the teaching of self-control and socially appropriate behaviors. Indeed, much of what the large body of research pertaining to fatherhood reveals is that, compared to children raised in two-parent homes, children who grow up without their fathers have significantly worse outcomes, on average, on almost every measure of well being (Horn, 2002). In addition, an understanding of the factors that may influence delinquent behaviors, in particular within the family unit, can better equip parents and educators to support those who may be exhibiting the beginning signs of delinquent behavior. This study was designed to determine the influence of, or correlation between, juvenile delinquency and the presence or absence of a father-figure in a child's life. Responses made on the Delinquency Check List between two sample sets, delinquent and non-delinquent adolescents, were examined. The study attempted to determine if delinquent activity among adolescents was differentiated by the absence or presence of a father-figure in a child's life. This study also investigated the frequency and severity of delinquent activities between adolescents in the determined sample groups. Advisors/Committee Members: Bullock, Lyndal M., Huffman, Jane B., Combes, Bertina H., Kinnison, Lloyd.
