Abstract

本文旨在探索青少年信仰連結、價值觀及偏差行為之關係。基於社會控制理論,本研究假設人性本惡,而一個堅強的信仰連結可以阻止青少年違反社會規範。當青少年的信仰連結微弱時,他們就會持有較少的正面價值及參與偏差行為。此研究透過隨機抽樣之方法,從62所教會中成功訪問了1,761位青少年。研究發現信仰連結與道德價值及自我價值有正面的關係。結果也肯定了青少年的信仰連結愈強,參與負面行為愈少。本文建議日後宜進行更多類似的研究,而且採用一個更廣範的樣本作驗證。
This paper examines the dynamic relationship between religious bonds, values and minor delinquent behavior among young people. Based on Social Control Theory, the study assumes that deviance is inherent in human nature, requiring no special motivation. It is also hypothesized that strong religious bonds can restrain youth from violating social norms. Youth with weak bonds to religion are likely to possess less positive values and be involved in minor delinquency. From a sample of 1,761 young churchgoers randomly selected from 62 churches, the study finds positive relationship between religious bonds and moral values, as well as general self-esteem. The study also confirms that youth with higher level of religious bonding are less prone to deviate from social norms. This paper suggests that further study should be conducted to test the relationship of religious factors and deviant behavior with a wider spectrum of samples.
