Similar to the previous publication, this edition also consists of five articles. The first article discuss about the result of a study regarding juvenile delinquency whose parents have divorced.

The result of the study shows that there is negative relation between self-control with compulsive buying. The third article of Jurnal Ilmu Perilaku is about definition and implementation of Ageng Suryomentaram’s Kawruh Jiwa Ki tenet on unity raos in everyday life. The result shows that sense of unity in the villagers of Bangun Rasa is defined as “Rasa Sama (Feeling of Similarity)”, guyub rukun, and mutual assistance. As the result of the implementation of unity roas, the villagers feel comfortable, sumeleh, and tranquil.
The next article discuss about the role of forgiving on juveniles’ psychological well-being that live in orphanage. The result of this study argues that there’s relation between the two variables.
