Czesław Czapów o rodzinie, grupie rówieśniczej i zachowaniach chuligańsko-przestępczych nieletnich
Languages of publication
In this article a few texts by Czesław Czapów published in the “The Pedagogical Quarterly” in the years 1957–1971 (two articles, three reviews and one report from a scientific session) are being discussed. Taking into account the content of Czapów’s papers, I focus mainly on the relationships between the various environmental factors (mostly family and peers) and the riotous and criminal behaviours of minors. This I still find a very current and important problem. The starting point was to show the differences in defining the riotous behaviour and criteria for deciding on the hooligan nature of crime in legislation and in practice of the judiciary. The given characteristics of hooligans takes into account the reasons and motivations of their comportment as well as the phases of the “social derailment”. Particularly important was to show Czapów’s reflection on the importance of family and peer group in this process.
