Psychological Characteristics of Self-attitude of Juvenile Sus-pects, Accused, Convicted of Violent Crimes

213

Abstract

The article looks into psychological characteristics of self-attitude in juvenile suspects, ac-cused and convicts of violent crimes held in detention facilities. Using the “Self-portrait” projective methodology, observation and psychodiagnostic structured counselling made it possible to reveal the psychological characteristics of self-attitude in such minors. It has been found that the structure of self-attitude components in juvenile suspects, accused and convicts is closely interrelated and organized and is characterised with inadequacy of their self-rating (upward or downward bias), difficulties in controlling one's drives of the body, aggressivity, egotism, proneness to depression, dependency, emotional immaturity, demon-strative behavior, proneness to internal conflict, “criminal contamination”, difficulties in communication.
