Differences between delinquents and Non-delinquents in being subject to Harmful experiences in childhood: An emperial study in three Arab societies

Auther : Kamal Morsy

     In the light of biosocial and psychosocial interpretations of delinquency and the results of numerous studies of the upbringing conditions of delinquents in Arab and non-Arab societies, the hypothesis was formulated that delinquents must have been subjected to more Harmful Experiences in childhood (HEC) than non-delinquents. Besides these HEC were classified into two kinds: a) HEC that child is subjected to at home, including deprevation, poor parent – child relationships and poor father-mother relationships. B) HEC that the child is subjected to at primary school, including underachievement, and poor teacher-pupil relationships.

     Two inventories were administered in the study:

    (One for the HEC at home and the other for HEC at school) to three groups of delinquents in Egypt, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia, and to three control groups of school pupils in these three Arab Societies.

    The finding indicate that delinquents had statistically significant more of HEC at home (for all societies) and of HEC at school (for the Egyptian and Kuwaiti societies only).

    In the discussion of result the investigator concludes that, being subject to HEC seems to develop delinquency tendencies later in life.
