Course ObjectiveYou learn to describe and relate environmental and child-personal
factors involved in the development of antisocial behavior and to
explain why some children develop antisocial behaviors.
Course ContentJuvenile Delinquency and Antisocial Behavior is focused on the etiology,
course and consequences of behavioral problems that may ultimately
result in the development of antisocial behavior. Central to this course
are environmental factors, such as parent-child and peer relationships,
and child-personal factors, such as genetic and neurocognitive
influences. Each week, we will focus on a specific factor that
potentially underlies the development of antisocial behavior. Using case
material, you will focus on how that particular factor may play a role
in children's antisocial development. In addition, we will consider and
discuss potential interventions for antisocial behavior problems.
