Taking stock of delinquency : an overview of findings from contemporary longitudinal studies by Terence P Thornberry( )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Counter Taking Stock in Delinquency is the comprehensive synthesis of the empirical findings of seven important ongoing longitudinal studies of delinquency. The seven projects included in this volume represent much of the diversity found in individual-based panel studies of antisocial behavior. Individually and collectively, the results of these investigations have been published in a wide range of disciplinary outlets, thus making it difficult to identify common themes and general principles. This volume intends to provide a comprehensive and unified picture of empirical results, both within these studies and across them. One of the fundamental purposes of Taking Stock in Delinquency is to examine the extent to which these studies answer the basic question of the origins of delinquent and criminal careers despite their varying guiding theories, methods, and settings. Taking Stock in Delinquency is an important resource for criminologists, psychologists, sociologists, and upper-level students on juvenile delinquency, criminology, developmental psychology, and deviant behavior

Gang members and delinquent behavior by Terence P Thornberry( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teams at several universities collaborated in studies of the Causes and Correlates of Delinquency program in three cities. This bulletin presents the findings from the Rochester (New York) Youth Development Study (ryds) concerning the contributions of youth gang membership to delinquency. The ryds started with a sample of 1,000 boys and girls in the 7th and 8th grades of the Rochester public schools. The sample included more youth from high-crime areas and fewer from low-crime areas. About 30% of the youth in the study reported being a member of a street gang at some point. Results clearly indicate that gang members were responsible for most of the delinquent acts reported. Although gang members were only one-third of the ryds respondents, they were responsible for 86% of the serious delinquent acts, 69% of the violent acts, and 70% of the drug sales. These findings underline the importance of establishing effective intervention programs for gang-involved youth. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (ojjdp) implemented a comprehensive response to gangs in 1994, with initiatives that include the identification of promising programs to reduce gang involvement. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America's Gang Prevention through Targeted Outreach program is an example of a gang reduction effort that is succeeding by recruiting youth into youth clubs in a nonstigmatizing way. Building its programs on a solid base of empirical research enables the ojjdp to plan multifaceted responses to youth gangs. (Contains 10 references.) (Sld)

Crime and justice at the millennium : essays by and in honor of Marvin E. Wolfgang by Robert A Silverman( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major theme of this Festschrift will be state-of-the-art criminology at the millennium and its impact into the 21st century. The editors have solicited major figures in contemporary criminology to elucidate the current state and future prospects of criminology at the turn of the century. It is appropriate that such a volume be produced in honor of Marvin E. Wolfgang, the most influential criminologist in the English-speaking world. Those invited to contribute were students or colleagues of Professor Wolfgang and are themselves distinguished criminologists. They represent criminology both of the past and the future. The appeal of the current book is not that it honors Marvin Wolfgang, but rather that it provides an accounting of where the discipline of criminology currently stands and its future directions. Professor Marvin E. Wolfgang was unsurpassed as a criminologist, distinguished mentor, and gentleman. A book designed to contribute to the most contemporary debates in criminology is a most fitting tribute

Rochester youth development study phase 1 data, 1988-1992 [Rochester, New York]( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Rochester Youth Development Study (RYDS) is part of the larger "Program of Research on the Causes and Correlates of Delinquency" initiated by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in 1986. The RYDS examines causes and consequences of delinquency and drug use in an urban sample of adolescents. A sample of 1,000 seventh and eighth grade students was selected from Rochester, New York, public schools during the 1987-1988 academic year. These students were selected to over-represent youth at high risk for serious delinquency and drug use. In Phase 1 each student was interviewed nine times at six-month intervals from the Spring of 1988 until the Spring of 1992. In addition, interviews with one primary caretaker of each student were conducted eight times at six-month intervals from the Spring of 1988 until the Fall of 1991. The interviews lasted about an hour and cover a wide range of topics including social class position, family structure and processes, educational success, peer relationships, neighborhood characteristics, psychological functioning, social networks, and social support systems, and involvement in prosocial and antisocial behaviors. When appropriate, the research team collected similar information from both the students and parents to provide multiple perspectives on these developmental issues. The research team also collected extensive information about problem behaviors including self-reported delinquency and drug use, gang membership, gun ownership, problem drug use, teenage parenthood, school dropout, and other problem behaviors
Urban delinquency and substance abuse by David Huizinga( Book )

3 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In collaborative efforts three research teams have investigated the problems of urban delinquency and substance abuse in longitudinal studies that have gone on since 1986. The Denver Youth Study is a longitudinal survey that involves annual interviews with probability samples of five different birth cohorts and their parents from areas of Denver (Colorado) that display high risk for delinquency. The Pittsburgh Youth Study, in two phases, selected boys attending grades 1, 4, and 7 in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) public schools. Of 2,250 initial subjects, 1,500 have been selected for followup. The Rochester Youth Development Study started with a sample of 1,000 boys and girls in Rochester (New York) and collected data on them over 4.5 years. This report updates an earlier report on these three studies, published in 1994, and supports previous conclusions. Violent offenses increased markedly with the onset of drug use, as did the carrying of concealed weapons. Continued drug use has been associated with an increase in violent offenses and the frequency of carrying weapons. The onset of drug selling for these juveniles was associated with an increase in violent crime, and the percentage of drug dealers carrying guns rose steadily for those between the ages of 16 and 19. When drug use was discontinued, violent offenses decreased. Findings are grouped into the following sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Results: Delinquency and Drug Use"; (3) "Results: Overlap of Problem Behaviors"; (4) "Results: Explanatory Factors and Delinquency"; (5) "Results: Common Themes"; and (6) "Programmatic Implications." (Contains 1 table and 15 figures.) (Sld)
