|Title:||The effect of life-course transitions on delinquent behavior among youth in social withdrawal situation||Author(s):||Chan, Gloria Hong Yee||Issue Date:||2015||Publisher:||Routledge||Journal:||Deviant Behavior||Volume:||36||Issue:||12||Start page:||935||End page:||955||Abstract:||
This study investigates whether young people in social withdrawal situations pass through life-course transitional events, and examines the relationship among their life-course transitions, quality of life, and delinquent behavior. To achieve these aims, quantitative analysis was used. A total of 588 young people in social withdrawal situations took part in this study. Results suggest that these people do pass through life-course transitions; their life-course events affect whether they will engage in delinquent behavior. Also, the effect of life-course transitions of these young people on their involvement in delinquent behavior is partly impacted by their quality of life.
