The Cycle of Deviant Behavior, 2006 Investigating Intergenerational Parallelism Longitudinal Research in the Social and Behavioral Sciences: An Interdisciplinary Series

Langue : Anglais

Couverture de l’ouvrage The Cycle of Deviant Behavior
To conduct the study on criminal and antisocial behavior at the center of this volume, the authors devoted years to collecting data from a large community sample of first-generation subjects. Data were garnered throughout their early adolescence, twenties, and thirties as well as from these first-generation subjects? biological children during their own early adolescence. The results of these studies have profound implications for future research and methodology on deviant behavior. Within the succinct, information-packed seven chapters of The Cycle of Deviant Behavior: Investigating Intergenerational Parallelism, the authors: - Present an integrative theory of deviant behavior, synthesizing social stress, social control, societal labeling, and other perspectives - Describe the intergenerational cycle of deviant behavior - Identify the relationship between deviance and its significant correlates (e.g., self-rejection) - Explain factors central to motivation toward deviant behaviors and to the continuance or discontinuance of these behaviors across generations - Review the literature on intergenerational parallelism and discuss the methodological limitations of current studies - By providing multiple models of parental transmission of values and culture ? and acknowledging the roles of intervening processes in life ? The Cycle of Deviant Behavior: Investigating Intergenerational Parallelism offers well-rounded insights to a wide range of professional readers, including sociologists, criminologists, and specialists in developmental and abnormal psychology and psychiatry.
