The article presents an investigation of the connection between self-image and the value-motivational orientation of delinquent adolescents in comparison with normatively developing adolescents. Delinquency among minors and young people is one of the most pressing social problems all over the world. Asocial behavior patterns and habits acquired at an early age in the absence of correction along the way can lead to a severe deformation of personality and the growth of recidivism. As such, it is imperative to study the mechanisms of the formation of deviant behavior. The connection between unlawful behavior of adolescents and the specifics of their self-image and value orientation is doubtless, however, this aspect is insufficiently elaborated academically. The article presents a study aimed at revealing the features of these associations in normatively developing and delinquent adolescents. The study involved 90 adolescents aged from 14 to 17. Of these 54% were boys, 46% were girls. The adolescents were divided into 3 groups: students of the 9th grade of general education schools, students of the 11th grade of general education schools, and delinquent adolescents who are registered with the Department of Juvenile Affairs. The peculiarities of the association between self-image and the value-motivational orientation of the personality of delinquent adolescents identified in the study will help in improving the system of prevention of neglect and juvenile delinquency.
