FORMIGA, Nilton Soares; SOUZA, Marcos Aguiar de; ESTEVAM, Ionara Dantas  e  OMAR, Alicia. Empirical evidence of the Scale of Antisocial and Criminal Behaviors in Argentine teenagers. Bol. - Acad. Paul. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.90, pp. 124-140. ISSN 1415-711X.

The problem of deviant behavior in youngsters has suggested urgent measurement scales and psychosocial interventions. The Antisocial and Criminal Behaviors Scale has been used in several countries as a behavioral measure of juvenile deviation; this scale has presented reliable psychometric indicators in different countries. The present article aims to evaluate the factorial organization and internal consistency of this version in Argentina. 190 persons participated in the study, from 13 to 17 years old, with a higher percentage of male volunteers and distributed in the primary and secondary education levels of the country (Argentina). The results corroborated the psychometric adequacy of the instrument, confirming the bifactorial structure proposed in previous studies. Therefore, the applied and general importance in the administration of this instrument by distinct areas of human and social science in Argentina is discussed
