Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The extent to which friends can have a positive influece on each other’s behavior has only rarely been studied in criminology, and peer influence is seen as almost entirely criminogenic. This study presents a preliminary test of the hypothsis that those with higher levels of social and self-control are more likely to intervene in their friends behavior in prosocial ways. Data are drawn from two convenience samples of students at a Northeastern public university. Findings indicate that prosocial peer influence is common, with almost every respondent in the sample reporting some experience with either administering or receiving direct attempts from friends to prevent them from engaging in deviant behavior, and that control attempts are positively correlated with attachment to friends and other control theory variables.
