For courses in Criminal Behavior, Forensic Psychology, and Criminology. Criminal Behavior: A Psychosocial Approach, 7e examines the many events and factors that influence the lives and behaviors of the criminal offender. By presenting a critical and interdisciplinary look at criminals and crime, the book challenges students to look beyond over-simplified or prejudicial conclusions about the "crime problem." The book considers the behavioral, emotional and cognitive aspects of offenders, looks at specific criminal offenses, and explores the causes, classification, prediction, intervention and treatment of criminal behavior.
