dc.description.abstract This thesis is based on a study of 100 Wards of The Children’s Aid Society of Colchester, who were in care as of December 31, 1962. The study was carried out by the second year students of the Maritime School of Social Work, with each student concentrating on a certain aspect of the problem. Primary data were obtained by means of schedules from the case records of the Wards. Secondary data consisted of census and bibliographical material. This thesis is limited to a study of thirty-one Wards whose behavior was defined as delinquent. The subject of this thesis is delinquency in wardship with specific consideration being given to contributing factors. It is primarily qualitative and descriptive in nature. It was concluded that there is a serious need for competent, knowledgeable social workers to give services to Wards. Also, that the children should be protected against undue stresses associated with foster care by providing them with stable homes and suitable foster parents.
