DELINQUENTS' AND NON-DELINQUENTS' PERCEPTION OF FAMILY FUNCTIONING IN THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
Abstract:The purpose of the study was to investigate the dynamics of family functioning between delinquent and non-delinquent subjects. 181 subjects (77 delinquents; 104 non-delinquents) answered the Family Functioning Questionnaire (FFQ). Results of the study indicated that there were no significant differences between delinquents and non-delinquents; but the results showed that there were significant differences between males and females across FFQ subscales in favor of males; also there were significant differences between delinquents and non-delinquents on the emotional fulfilment and behavioral control subscales in favor of delinquents.
