Abstract

The paper describes the results of a comparative study of trust in other people in juvenile offender and law-abiding teens. The study involved 113 young offenders (from detention center for juvenile offenders, special closed schools, juvenile correctional facilities of Voronezh and Lipetsk regions) and 106 law-abiding teens, 13 to 18 years old. We identified the types of trust in other people in the two groups of adolescents. We analyzed the specifics of trust in other people in the group of offenders compared to law-abiding teenagers. Offenders reveal great variability in trust in other people. We describe a specific feature of confidence in offenders: their desire to establish shorter psychological distance from particular people, compared to law-abiding subjects. The factors causing the particular trust in other people are compared in juvenile offenders and in law-abiding teenagers. We analyzed deficiency and resource characteristics of trust in other people system in juvenile offenders.
