The Psychology of Criminal Conduct Book Description:

The Psychology of Criminal Conduct, 6th Edition, provides a foundational description of risk assessment for individuals involved in the criminal justice system, drawing upon general personality as well as cognitive-behavioral and cognitive social learning perspectives. James Bonta and Donald Andrews offer a coherent theory of criminal behavior that is empirically supported throughout the book. They provide an overview of theoretical context and major knowledge base of the psychology of criminal conduct, discuss the eight major risk/need factors of criminal conduct, examine the prediction and classification of criminal behavior along with prevention and rehabilitation, and finally summarize the major issues in understanding criminal conduct. This book also offers the Risk/Need/Responsivity (RNR) model, a model of offender assessment and treatment that has guided developments in the area. In this edition, the first since Andrews' death, Bonta carefully maintains all the book's original contributions while presenting these core concepts succinctly, clearly, and elegantly. Appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students as well as for scholars, researchers, and practitioners, The Psychology of Criminal Conduct, 6th Edition, improves upon and extends the content of this important book with further refinements of the authors' body of work.
