helps them cope with problems & develop social identity

-Music occupies a significant place in adolescence

-Portrays society & brings satisfaction to some of adolescents’
social & emotional needs

-Music listening often represents their most popular & pleasurable activity

-Fascination for music in adolescence frequently leads to the formation of
r groups who share—as common denominator— preference for specific musical styles

-Social phenomenon: referred to as musical
bcultures that provide adolescents with an alternative cultural
identity, values, & convictions
What causes music to have a negative effect on juvenile delinquents?
-During adolescence, young people develop a more autonomous position in relation to their parents during the ages of 14 &15
-Become more dependent on friends & peers in cliques & crowds
-Researches believe that not all genres of music have a negative effective on Juvenile delinquents except for two, which are Rap music and Heavy Rock music
-Misogynistic ( to dislike, hatred or mistreatment women) lyrics lead to disrespect of women and acceptance of domestic violence
-Juvenile delinquency rates that have gone down in other areas, have remained relatively constant for assault

Researchers findings by Hansen & Hansen...
Lennings & Warburton
Hansen & Hansen
have found that “Adolescents in the United States listen to music between 2 and 3 hours daily on average
-“Exposure to violent lyrics or music videos can have a direct effect on externalizing behaviors in the short run.”
-“Such exposure fosters hostility & aggressive thoughts & feelings”
Lennings & Warburton:
violent music lyrics rather than violent visual media are more likely to elicit violenceJe
Jeffrey Arnett & Keith Roe:
“adolescents consume the type of media that fits their personality and social context, that is, those who are at odds with their parents & teachers & are inclined to sensation seeking, disinhibition, & substance use, gravitate toward media reflecting these particular characteristics.”

Researchers findings
Researchers have agreed that depending on the juveniles up bringing certain music can act as catalyst to deviant lifestyles. But concluded that more research has to be done to definitely connect it to juvenile delinquency.
