Criminal behavior: a psychosocial approach
Designed for junior/senior-level courses in Psychology of Crime, Criminal Behavior, Criminology, and Crime Patterns, this text uses a cognitive-behavioral and interactionist approach, integrating international theory and research and moving from broad, theoretical explanations and descriptions of crime toward empirical research on specific criminal offenses. Viewing the criminal offender as being embedded and continually influenced by multiple systems within the psychosocial environment, the book examines the causes, classification, prediction, prevention, intervention, and treatment of criminal behavior from a social psychological perspective. The Fifth Edition presents the criminal offender as existing on a continuum, ranging from the serious, repetitive offender that begins his/her criminal career at a very young age to the adolescent-limited offender who usually begins offending during adolescence.
