This study aims to ascertain whether social and personal resources are related to deviant behaviour of adolescents. The social resources investigated are those available to them in their home, peer- group and school, and are measured in terms of parental support, peer-group support and school experiences.The personal resources studied are concepts of self, coping behaviour and moral development. Comparing delinquent subjects to controls will ascertain the resources that helped adolescents abstain from deviant behaviour. Survey method is used for data collection. The questionnaire is administrated to 63 male delinquent subjects in an approved school. The questionnaire is posted to 16 of their non-delinquent male siblings who are close in age. The same questionnaire is later administered to 69 controls in a normal day school. Home visits are made to four families of the delinquents to collect qualitative data to obtain greater understanding of juvenile delinquency.
