dc.description.abstract This thesis has explored the process whereby "delinquents” become perceptually differentiated from "typical adolescents" through a descriptive analysis of the differentiators and non-differentiators among a group of suburban Junior high school teachers.The instrument used to gather the data was a semi-structured questionnaire, consisting of three sections. The first two sections gathered personal and occupational information about the teachers. The third section attempted to elicit the evaluative direction of the teachers' perceptions of "typical adolescents" and "delinquents".The results of the analysis of the responses of the 66 teachers were presented. On the basis of the fourteen pro-selected social characteristics of the respondents, descriptions of the “differentiators” and “non-differentiators", as well as of the general population, were provided.
