Abstract

Juvenile crime, its causes and consequences, the system of juvenile justice, as well as the processes of re-socialization and rehabilitation of young people in the correctional penitentiary facilities are subject of interest of many criminologists, penologists, and criminal justice scholars. In the whole system of juvenile justice, the position of youth in penitentiary institutions is a special area of analysis, attention and research. Exactly, the processes of adaptation, re-socialization and rehabilitation of the youngsters accommodated in those institutions depend on their treatment, protection and disciplinary measures applied to them. In this regard, certain respective topics are a subject matter of theoretical exploration in this paper. Those are: the specific features of the young convicted persons related to their developmental period and their impact on the imprisonment, the models of adaptation of the prison conditions, and the issue of distrust of the processes of re-socialization. In this part, three important theories have been elaborated: Sykes (1958) and Goffman (1961) theory of deprivation, Irwin and Cressey (1962) theory of importation, and Agnew (1992) general strain theory.
