dc.description.abstractWe understand little about how interpersonal strain can be used to examine the different processes affecting male and female involvement in delinquency and vulnerability to depression. By using General Strain Theory (GST), this study offers new insight into the pathology of delinquency and depression for males and females. Using a unique sample of African Americans, I test for (1) how interpersonal strain differentially predicts delinquency and depression for the two genders, (2) the different role anger and depression play in mediating the effect of strain on delinquency for females, and (3) the reciprocal relationships between interpersonal strain and delinquency and depression as well as anger and depression. Analysis indicates that interpersonal strains predict both involvement in delinquency and vulnerability to depression for adolescent females but not males. In addition depression and not anger mediates a portion of the effect of interpersonal strain on delinquency for adolescent females.
