Overview

This book approaches the understanding of delinquent and criminal behavior from a developmental, coginitive-behavioral, and psychological perspective. Viewing the juvenile and adult offender as being embedded and continually influenced by multiple systems, the book examines the risk and protective factors that are believed to influence the developmental pathways on the road to delinquency and crime. The 8th edition continues to be heavily researched in a style that allows the reader to follow the flow of the research literature.

Most up-to-date psychological research and theories regarding criminal behavior are presented. Highlights how psychological, social, economic, political and ecological factors all play a role in influencing individual behavior. Looks at specific crimes from a psychological perspective: terrorism, sniper attacks, homicide and serial murder, cyber crime, white collar crime, identity theft, sex crimes, school violence, hate crimes, stalking, family violence, and drug crimes. Coverage of criminal profiling and crime scene analysis. Strategies for prevention and treatment of criminal behavior offered. New chapter on the treatment of juvenile offenders. Sections on juvenile offending added include: Juvenile Serial Murder, Juvenile Sex Offenders, Child Delinquents, Peer Rejection, School Failure, Language Deficiencies, Brain Development, Female Juvenile Sex Offenders, Current Juvenile Drug Use, & Juvenile Psychopathy.

Professionals involved with the prevention and treatment of criminal behavior.
