Example text

A reputation-enhancement goal is the desire to achieve and maintain a particular social identity. Self-identity and self-presentation are regulated by adolescents with the goal that others will perceive them in a certain desired manner. Those adolescents most likely to become delinquents choose nonconforming social goals on which to base their reputations. The feedback received from peers is a powerful influence that informs both goal choice and peer reputation. Peers often generate and facilitate expressions of shared behavioral inclinations (Emler, 1984; Emler & Reicher, 1995).

In contrast, at-risk and delinquent adolescents attached greater importance to delinquency and freedom/autonomy goals, goals associated with law-breaking activities, exemption from adult control, and independence. These goals are more related to attaining a Social Image. In the Carroll et al. (1997) study, at-risk adolescents as young as 12 years were found to be attaching high levels of importance to goals related to delinquency and freedom/autonomy and lower levels of importance to goals related to education.

Given the integrated model of delinquency we proposed, which involves adolescents seeking specific, challenging goals to which they are committed, it is expected that delinquent and nondelinquent adolescents will vary in their interpersonal or social skills, future time perspectives, moral insight (with respect to their goals), and self-esteem. It is thus not necessary to assume that delinquents are deficient in these attributes. , 1989; Henderson & Hollin, 1986; Losel, 1975; ¨ Trommsdorf & Lamm, 1980; Zieman & Benson, 1983).
