AbstractThe aim of this study is to identify the life conditions of adolescent subjects accused of having committed robbery and crimes against health, from a psychosocial perspective. A tally of 122 dossiers were studied, from which 50% were male and female adolescents accused of crimes against health, and the other 50%, for robbery. Seventy per cent of males and 68.2% of females had consumed a type of drugs, 66% of the total of the sample showed little tolerance to frustration, 60% had an inadequate handling of affectivity, with a significant difference when studied for every type of crime. Among the differences identified, psychological conditions, such as personality, are more associated to juvenile delinquency.
