Abstract

MENIN, Maria Suzana De Stefano. Teenagers's attitudes of delinquency as social representations. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2003, vol.16, n.1, pp. 125-135. ISSN 0102-7972.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-79722003000100013.

This work presents the evaluation of 18 infringements that 480 teenagers carried out in six-point a scale correspondence analysis revealed that boys, teenagers of private schools and those of highest income have a tendency to evaluate the infringements with more average marks than high marks and atribute the highest marks to the infringements that threaten human life. Girls, lower class teenagers have a tendency to atribute higher marks to all infringements, evaluating them more severely. Data were discussed taking into account the Theory of Social Representation (Moscovici, Jodelet, Doise).

Keywords : Social representation; evaluation of infringements; teenager's attitude.
