Abstract

The purpose of this study was actually dual in nature, the first part being to conduct a value clarification program for delinquent girls and the second purpose being to evaluate the effectiveness of the program and investigate any change that was noted in the pretest and post tests given to both control and treatment groups. The methods used in this study were: (1) the Learning Inventory for Vital Education (L.I.V.) measuring instrument created by the Texas Education Agency and (2) a value clarification treatment program consisting of group discussions, role playing, lecture, decision-making exercises, games, and value clarification exercises. The value clarification program did not bring about any great significant change.
