Abstract:

The family ritual life, social risk factors, and deviant behavior of young adult African American inmates from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (n=101) and from the Texas college population (n=72) were examined. Descriptives, t-tests, and regression statistics were used to assess possible associations. The incarcerated respondents and the college students experienced similar family rituals while growing up. College students reported higher levels of meaningful family rituals and less deviant behavior than the inmates. Higher levels of meaningful family rituals were not associated with less deviant behavior for either group. Social risk factors were better indicators of deviant behavior than meaningful family rituals. Implications from the findings for family professionals are discussed.
