return to society
positive subjective experiences
The purpose of this study is to investigate the positive subjective experiences from the grown-up juvenile delinquents deciding to return to society and developing well. There were six grown-up juvenile delinquents participating in this study, and in-depth interviews were used to understand the journey about how they developed positive subjective experiences. According to the research findings, there were many ups and downs through these six grown-up juvenile delinquents’ early years, such as unstable families and being marginalized in school. Thus, they turned to focus on their social lives. However, their lives changed when they broke the law and received judicial interventions. With judicial interventions and resources from social affairs systems, they had the motivations to change their status quo. These social resources also strengthen their family bonds. From then on, these juvenile delinquents nourished strong dedication to the fields that worth development. After several years, they now have stable lives and could attain positive subjective experiences from their careers or lives. Lastly, based on the results of this study, we make policy recommendations, including education systems, workplaces and social services.
