Abstract

The current study aimed to explore the correlates of CSI in a single study, using the recently validated MDSI (Measure of Delinquent Social Identity). Path analysis was conducted among a sample of opportunistically selected youth offenders (N = 536; age range from 12 to 17 years), separately for boys ( n = 348; M age = 15.28 years) and girls ( n = 188; M age = 15.23 years). Findings showed a positive significant relationship between interpersonal manipulation and ingroup affect (β = .08) for boys, and a positive significant relationship between interpersonal manipulation and in-group ties (β = .21) for girls. Among boys, the findings revealed a negative significant relationship between self-esteem and cognitive centrality (β = -.13). For girls only, a negative significant relationship was identified between living with parents and associating with
criminal friends (β = -.20). Limitations and advantages, including practical implications, of the current research are discussed, highlighting directions for future research
