Abstract

EXPLORED SEVERAL APPROACHES TO THE PREDICTION OF PROBATION VIOLATION OR NONVIOLATION IN 287 MALE JUVENILE DELINQUENTS WHO HAD NEVER BEEN INSTITUTIONALIZED. PREDICTIONS FROM A BASE EXPECTANCY TABLE WERE SIGNIFICANTLY THOUGH NOT GREATLY BETTER THAN CHANCE. CLINICAL JUDGMENTS FROM MMPI PROFILES BY 2 INDEPENDENT JUDGES COMPLETELY FAILED TO IMPROVE UPON CHANCE, AS DID ACTUARIAL PREDICTIONS BASED ON THE DELINQUENCY-PRONENESS DATA OF S. R. HATHAWAY AND E. D. MONACHESI (SEE 38:5). AN ATTEMPT TO EMPLOY MMPI RESPONSES IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF A MODERATOR SCALE TO ENHANCE PREDICTION FROM THE BASE EXPECTANCY DATA ALSO FAILED. THE FAILURE OF PREDICTION FROM THE MMPI DATA IS CONSISTENT WITH SUTHERLAND'S DIFFERENTIAL ASSOCIATION THEORY OF CRIME CAUSATION. (22 REF.)
