This study examines the relationship between self-control and pre-and post-program criminal referrals in 217 teenagers from a Treatment Foster Care Program. An reliability analysis produced a 19-item self- control scale made from item responses on the Taylor-Johnson Temperament Analysis. Correlations were performed on pre and post program criminal referrals. No relationship between self-control and pre-or post-crime was found. An overall reduction in criminal activity was noted. A discussion of the results along with implications for future research is explored.
