Antisocial Personality Disorder PARENTAL ALIENATION PERSONALITY DISORDERS Q & A with #LindaCJTurner

Q & A – What are delinquent peers?

Delinquent peers are individuals who engage in deviant or criminal behavior, such as substance abuse, theft, vandalism, or violence. These individuals may be friends, acquaintances, or peers who share similar values, attitudes, and behaviors.

For some adolescents, delinquent peers can have a significant influence on their behavior and decision-making. Peer pressure, the desire for social acceptance, and the belief that delinquent behavior is “cool” or “exciting” can all contribute to a young person’s involvement in deviant behavior.

Research has shown that associating with delinquent peers can increase the risk of a range of negative outcomes, such as substance abuse, academic problems, and involvement in the criminal justice system. Additionally, adolescents who associate with delinquent peers may be more likely to develop Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) or other mental health problems.

It’s important to note that not all adolescents who associate with delinquent peers will engage in deviant behavior, and many factors can influence a young person’s behavior and choices. However, addressing peer influences and providing positive role models and supportive environments can be important protective factors for adolescents at risk for involvement in delinquent behavior.
