Abstract

Several theoretical models emphasize the relationship between social and psychological factors and delinquency. This
relationship has been proposed by various hypothetical and theoretical approaches in the literature. Indeed, this relationship is a
mainstay of most theories of delinquency, either explicitly or implicitly. This study examines the latter aspects of this presumed
relationship using juvenile males in detention placement Institution of Juvenile of Kavaja (Albania).The purposes of the analysis: in order
to find the causes of changing and the cause-effect relations, refered in the statistical analysis, it is needed to set which variables,
whether psychological or social, are involved in how the individuals are influenced or included in deliquent behaviour. Results: The
results of this study will blend together with conclusions and will be used as key points to the future orientations, so to whom this analysis
serves, why is it important to consider, how and what changes might be done, if such are needed. Conclusions: Why it is important to
consider, and what changes can be made, if such are needed. There is an urgent need to better understand delinquent behavior, which
are closely based on social, psychological factors or on other coexistent variables, need which this study tries to cover.
