Theoretical Framework and Model Development 37 Following the development of the revised systems theory framework, personal, interpersonal, and contextual theories of delinquency are discussed with respect to their location in the new theoretical framework. Subsequent to the review of individual theories of delinquency, an integrative model of delinquency, proposed by Shoemaker (2000) is presented.

Brown, 1990; Bartollas, 2003; Gecas & Seff; 1990; Sebald, 1986) have noted that, during adolescence, peers are important influences on decisions regarding fashion, music, and engaging in risky behaviors whereas parents remain important sources of moral and religious guidance. Two key aspects of microsystems are: a) that they are directly experienced by the individual and b) he/she deems those experiences to be relevant. Experience is a crucial component of Bronfenbrenner’s theory and represents the underlying social psychological and ecological features of his theory.

The discussion of the final hypothesized model describes the theoretical influences underlying the model and summarizes the hypothesized pathways that explain problem behaviors. Systems Theory/Ecological Approach The social and physical environment surrounding an individual can be described as an ecological map. Bronfenbrenner defines components of a person’s ecological map in terms of “ecological-environmental levels” or systems (Muuss, 2000). Bronfenbrenner suggests that a person’s development and behavior are determined by his/her perceptions of systems within that ecological map.
