Abstract

The current research aimed to find out relationship between self-control, social support and deviant behavior among adolescents. It was hypothesized that there would be a relationship between self-control, social support and deviant  behavior  in  adolescents.  Moreover,  self-control would negatively predict deviant behavior in adolescents and social support is also would negatively predict deviant behavior in adolescents. Cross sectional correlation research design was used in current study. The sample was consisted of (N = 120) adolescents (Mage= 16.95, SD = 0.81). Convenient sampling method was used to collect data from different colleges of Lahore. Brief Self-control Scale (Tangney, Baumeister, & Boone, 2004), Multidimensional Perceived Social Support Scale (Zimet, Dahlem, Zimet, & Farley, 1988), and Deviant Behavior Variety Scale (Sanches et al. 2016) were used to measure self-control, social support and deviant behavior in adolescents. It was found that self- control and social support have a negative relationship with deviant behavior in adolescents. Present study findings are discussed in light of previous researches.
