About this product
- DescriptionThis book examines the psychological constructs of crime and the criminal lifestyle and includes topics such as psychopathy, antisocial personality disorder, and criminal lifestyle. Written in an engaging style, the author introduces compelling explanations of crime, in part by showing how the criminal lifestyle is capable of integrating two seemingly incompatible crime paradigms: the career criminal paradigm and the criminal career paradigm. Starting with a context for criminality, moving from particular constructs of crime to more evidence-based theories, this volume challenges students to think in a different way about crime and criminal behavior. Each chapter: * Begins with a clinical case study that is periodically referenced throughout the chapter to illustrate and illuminate the context being discussed * examines the latent structure of crime-related constructs such as psychopathy, antisocial personality disorder, and criminal lifestyle * explores evidence-based interventions that could prevent further crime * offers a view of the phemelogical world of the criminal offender to help students further understand the nature of crime.
- Author BiographyGlenn D. Walters received his Ph.D. at Texas Tech University in 1982 with a concentration in Counseling Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience. He is employed full-time as a psychologist in a correctional setting while also teaching courses, both graduate and undergraduate, as an Adjunct Professor at The Pennsylvania State University, Schuylkill, and Lehigh University. In addition to forensic psychology, he teaches abnormal psychology, psychological assessment, and developmental psychology. He has written two other books with SAGE: Drugs & Crime in Lifestyle Perspective (1994) and The Criminal Lifestyle: Patterns of Serious Criminal Conduct (1990). The present book is an outgrowth of the author's experiences teaching criminology and forensic psychology and the realization that crime is better understood once students appreciate the context of criminal development and desistance.
