    Abstract

    School maladjustment is one of the first symptoms to appear in response to alterations in the child's development and maturation. The aim of this paper is to study school maladjustment in minors confined in juvenile court center and its associations with sociofamiliar, psychobiographical, and social maladjustment variables among others, given the fact that school is one of the earliest agents of socialization. The results point to the influence of family conflict on the subject's behavior in association with the anxiety trait and extroversion. We believe that an accurate diagnosis of school maladjustment is essential as it is in this setting where the treatment of social maladjustment can be initiated with a minimum of delay.
