Abstract

Nowadays, the high rate of participation of teenagers and young people in committing crimes, especially violent crimes, is a matter of great concern and deserves special attention from governments. It is obvious that the components of the cultural situation and the group of companions (friends) of people are very effective factors in the level of their inclinations towards committing various acts. The main purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of the triple components of age, attachment to parents and belief in the law on the state of subculture of violence and violence of companion groups among teenage and young wrestlers in Mashhad city. Based on the results of the statistical analysis carried out in the research, it should be acknowledged: there is a significant and direct relationship between age variable and variables in subculture of violence and violence of companions groups, but there is a significant and inverse relationship between attachment and belief with variables in the subculture of violence and the violence of companions groups. Also, based on the findings of the research, it can be said: the different effects of attachment and belief on the cultural status and companion groups of the samples are not always one-sided effects and these effects can be mutual.
