The Etiology of Antisocial Behavior: A Developmental Perspective

The treatment of antisocial behavior is one of the more intractable problems clinicians face in the treatment of children and adolescents. Given the cost to society, families, and the individuals themselves, researchers have endeavored to better understand the factors which influence the development of antisocial behavior. Current efforts are utilizing a variety of investigative techniques including imaging, genetics, physiological and behavioral measurements, and animal models. As our understanding of the etiology of antisocial behavior evolves, it has not only informed the approach taken in diagnosis and treatment, but also begun to influence social and public policy, with greater awareness of the importance of early childhood experiences. This Institute explores the advances made in our understanding of the etiology of antisocial behavior by discussing treatment and policy implications. Participants gain an appreciation for the advances made in understanding the factors that influence antisocial behavior early in development and understand how research has helped to guide treatment and disposition of youths who engage in antisocial behavior.
