Early Prevention of Adult Antisocial Behaviour

£22.99

Product description

This book presents a comprehensive and up-to-date summary of how adult crime, antisocial behaviour and antisocial personality disorder can be prevented by interventions applied early in life. It reviews important childhood risk and protective factors for these adult outcomes. Alternative strategies of primary prevention (targeting the whole community) and secondary prevention (targeting persons identified as high-risk) are also discussed. The book contains extensive information about prevention programmes in pregnancy and infancy, preschool programmes, parent education and training programmes, and school programmes (including the prevention of bullying). There is special emphasis in preventing the intergenerational transmission of antisocial behaviour by focussing on family violence, and a special review of whether risk factors and prevention programmes have different effects for females compared to males. Cost-benefit analyses of early prevention programmes are also reviewed, leading to the conclusion that adult antisocial behaviour can be prevented both effectively and cost-efficiently.
