A STUDY OF PREDICTIVE FACTORS IN REPEAT OFFENDER DRUNK DRIVERS

This study applied a human systems approach to the study of predictive factors in repeat offender drunk drivers. Sixty male volunteers from drunk driver and alcoholism treatment programs were administered questionnaires for assessing demographic variables and domains of the individual's behavioral subsystems. The physiological syubsystem, the conginitve domain, and the interpersonal sybsystem were studied. Testing found significance among the groups on the variables of alcoholism, self-concept, and certain elements of narcissism. Repeat Offenders and Alcoholic Non-DUI Alcoholics reported lower self-concepts and greater number of Deviant Signs on the TSCS (Tennessee Self Concept Scale) than Repeaters.
