I developed a stand-alone, self-report scale to assess social desirability/ positive impression management in juvenile delinquents being evaluated for legal disposition purposes. Based on very preliminary, small sample size field testing, this scale was found to have high correlations with other scales, e.g., the Defensiveness scale of the Personality Inventory for Youth, the Denial Scale of the Jesness Inventory-Revised, and moderate, inverse correlations with scales such as the Externalizing, Rule-Breaking, Anxious/Depressed scales on the Youth Self-Report. Does anyone have the interest and resources to field test this measure with larger samples to examine convergent and discriminant associations?

The research about this topic is mind blowing. So much information and proof that there is a need for gender-based assessments and programs to address the needs of the girls to help reduce recidivism. It seems to be a nationwide issue. Why aren't there any solutions?
