Conduct Disorder - Conclusion - Theory, Family, Development, Development, and Children - JRank Articles

Intervention research confirms the importance of promoting family management, attending to peer dynamics, and addressing self-regulation to reduce problem behavior in youth with CD. Successful interventions are those that are flexible in delivery, promote a collaborative process with related individuals, and involve proactive behavior management. The prevalence of conduct disorder within a family can profoundly affect individual and collective functioning and initiate a cycle of frustration, negativity, and escalating behavior problems. It is important to engage families in processes that will mitigate the development of CD symptoms and promote positive and sustainable change in both parent and child behavior.

Forensic Psychology - Criminal Justice

Forensic psychology is the formal intersection between the criminal justice system and the scientific field of psychology. The study of forensic psychology involves understandings, through constant evaluation, of the criminal law systems in various jurisdictions throughout the world. The field of science takes this information and relates to the interactions between judges, attorney and legal professionals. In essence, the specific scope of law is attached to the behavioral traits of legal professionals who make up the particular legal system. The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Online.

Pornography and Sexual Violence

Since legal controls on sexually explicit material began to loosen dramatically in the 1970s and the issue attained a new visibility, a variety of different methods have been used to try to answer that question, or at least provide clues to the answer. After two decades of research, there is little consensus, not only as to that answer but as to definitions of terms, appropriate methods of investigation, or even how to frame the question.

This essay will attempt to highlight the most relevant aspects of these disputes and reach tentative conclusions that can guide people working in the field. Definitions. Untitled. Understanding terrorism. Determining what drives people to terrorism is no easy task. For one thing, terrorists aren't likely to volunteer as experimental subjects, and examining their activities from afar can lead to erroneous conclusions. What's more, one group's terrorist is another group's freedom fighter, as the millions of Arabs who support Palestinian suicide bombers will attest. Given these complexities, the psychology of terrorism is marked more by theory and opinion than by good science, researchers admit. But a number of psychologists are starting to put together reliable data.

They're finding it is generally more useful to view terrorism in terms of political and group dynamics and processes than individual ones, and that universal psychological principles—such as our subconscious fear of death and our desire for meaning and personal significance—may help to explain some aspects of terrorist actions and our reactions to them.
