Summary/Abstract: With this article we attempted to contribute to underastandin of complex issues of as thoug very often present psychopathology of juvenile delinquents. Ethiology of various forms of devious behavior in young people is most commonly associated with family atmosphere, parents or social disorganisation. Still it is hard to say how much is, and wich factors influence different forms of deviant behaviour of the young. In the manner favoured amongst scientific public, we tried assess interpretation of psychopathological manifestations by the use of two theory models, for this purpose called family and social variables. We tried to separate aspects of family functionality (Model I) and those factors that in their nature are not family related (Model II), but can strongly influence labeling or comperhension of negative self concept. The sample included 50 juvenile delinquents, of wich 30 have been sentenced to open protection close surveillance by parents or custody bodies, and 20 to in door protection.
