dc.description.abstract The current study investigated the relationship between maladaptive thinking styles and delinquent behavior in a non-offender sample. Participants were 712 college students who completed a series of self-report questionnaires that assessed demographic qualities, maladaptive thinking, and history of delinquent behavior. I hypothesized that level of maladaptive thinking style would significantly predict delinquent behavior. Results suggested that maladaptive thinking endorsed by the current college sample followed a pattern similar to that of offender samples. In addition, univariate analyses in generalized linear modeling demonstrated that maladaptive thinking is a significant predictor of self-endorsed delinquent behavior.
