Juvenile crime, juvenile justice by Joan McCord( )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book discusses patterns and trends in crimes committed by children and adolescents, analyzing youth crime as a subset of general crime and studying the impact of race and gender. It evaluates different approaches to forecasting future crime rates. Data come from a national panel that examined what is known about juvenile crime and its prevention, treatment, and control. Six chapters discuss: (1) "Introduction" (E.G., child and adolescent development and international perspectives); (2) "Patterns and Trends in Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice" (E.G., crime trends and girls and delinquency); (3) "The Development of Delinquency" (E.G., individual, social, and community risk factors); (4) "Preventing Juvenile Crime" (E.G., family, school-based, peer group, and community interventions); (5) "The Juvenile Justice System" (E.G., history of the juvenile justice system, girls in the juvenile justice system, and recent legislative changes); and (6) "Race, Crime, and Juvenile Justice: The Issue of Racial Disparity" (racial disparity and bias in the juvenile justice system). Four appendixes present a definition of offenses used in uniform crime reporting; "The Indeterminacy of Forecasts of Crime Rates and Juvenile Offenses" (Kenneth C. Land and Patricia L. McCall); workshop agendas; and biographical sketches. (Contains approximately 800 references.) (Sm)

Violence and childhood in the inner city by Joan McCord( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors to this book believe that something can be done to make life in American cities safer, to make growing up in the urban ghettos less risky, and to reduce the violence that so often permeates urban childhoods. They consider why there is so much violence, why some people become violent and others do not, and why violence is more prevalent in some areas. Both biological and psychological characteristics of individuals are considered. The authors also discuss how the urban environment, especially the street culture, affects childhood development. They review a variety of intervention strategies, considering when it would be appropriate to use them and towards whom they should be targeted. Drawing upon ethnographic commentary, laboratory experiments, historical reviews, and program descriptions, this book presents a variety of opinions on the causes of urban violence and the changes necessary to reduce it

Preventing antisocial behavior : interventions from birth through adolescence by Joan McCord( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A variety of approaches to preventing antisocial behavior in children have ranged from infant schools to residential treatment centers, from social training to psychological therapies, with evaluations that have typically been little more than testimonials to current fashions. By introducing experimental approaches to the study of intervention strategies, enduring results can issue even from programs that have failed to achieve their therapeutic goals. This book provides evaluations of prevention experiments for infancy and early childhood, middle years, and adolescence. The chapters include biological, social, emotional, and cognitive approaches. The chapters are: (1) "The Role of Prevention Experiments in Discovering Causes of Children's Antisocial Behavior" (Robins); (2)"Infants at Risk: The Role of Preventive Intervention in Deflecting a Maladaptive Developmental Trajectory" (Booth, Spieker, Barnard, and Morisset); (3) "The Mother-Child Home Program: Research Methodology and the Real World" (Levenstein); (4) "High/Scope Preschool Program Outcomes" (Weikart and Schweinhart); (5) "Social Interactions of Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Effects of Methylphenidate" (DuPaul and Barkley); (6) "Parent and Child Training to Prevent Early Onset of Delinquency: the Montreal Longitudinal-Experimental Study" (Tremblay, Vitaro, Bertrand, LeBlanc, Beauchesne, Boileau, and David); (7) "The Seattle Social Development Project: Effects of the First Four Years on Protective Factors and Problem Behaviors" (Hawkins, Catalano, Morrison, O'Donnell, Abbott, and Day); (8) "Building Developmental and Etiological Theory through Epidemiologically Based Preventive Intervention Trials" (Kellam and Rebok); (9) "The Cambridge-Somerville Study: a Pioneering Longitudinal-Experimental Study of Delinquency Prevention" (McCord); (10) "The Interplay of Theory and Practice in Delinquency Prevention: From Behavior Modification to Activity Settings" (O'Donnell); (11) "The St. Louis Experiment: Effective Treatment of Antisocial Youths in Prosocial Peer Groups" (Feldman); (12) "An Experimental Test of the Coercion Model: Linking Theory, Measurement, and Intervention" (Dishion, Patterson, and Kavanaugh); (13) "Sociomoral Reasoning in Behavior-Disordered Adolescents: Cognitive and Behavioral Change" (Arbuthnot); (14) "Theory-Guided Investigation: Three Field Experiments" (Gottfredson and Gottfredson); (15) "Intensive Supervision of Status Offenders: Evidence on Continuity of Treatment Effects for Juveniles and a 'Hawthorne Effect' for Counselors" (Land, McCall, and Williams); and (16) "The Need for Longitudinal-Experimental Research on Offending and Antisocial Behavior" (Farrington).

Beyond empiricism : institutions and intentions in the study of crime by Joan McCord( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beyond Empiricism expands the discourse on theories of criminal behavior. It considers institutional, social, and individual issues related to criminal behavior, while individually each raises questions about the adequacy of current theoretical claims. The topics have significant implications both for policy and research in criminology." "McCord emphasizes the intentionality of crimes as she argues that to understand what causes crime, one must have a theory about what it means to act intentionally. After critically appraising prior theories McCord introduces and defends a new theory of motivation based on a post-empiricist theory of language."--Jacket

Facts, frameworks, and forecasts by Joan McCord( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Facts, Frameworks, and Forecasts calls for rethinking the development of criminological theory. In her introduction, Joan McCord argues that the field is ready for new approaches and that its progress depends on a sound factual base. Examining the discipline's research design, methodology, and quantitative analysis efforts, the contributors identify significant advances in criminological theory. This empirical orientation results in a balanced blend of information and speculation. This book contains a comprehensive review. The first chapter describes biological conditions that have theoretical links with criminal behavior--ending with a discussion of how biological and social conditions may interact to influence criminal behavior. Early chapters discuss general issues related to crime. These are followed by expositions of theoretical orientations not typically found in criminological literature. The second half of the book describes seven longitudinal studies in four countries. The authors interpret their data to expose biological, social, and psychological factors they believe may influence criminal behavior. These contributors include: Guenther Knoblich and Roy King, Daniel Glaser, Robert A. Rosellini and Robin L. Lashley, Robert J. Sampson, Ellen S. Cohn and Susan O. White, Joan McCord, L. Rowell Huesmann and Leonard D. Eron, Robert Cairns and Beverly Cairns, Richard E. Tremblay, Patricia Cohen and Judith S. Brook, David P. Farrington and David Magnussen, Britt af Klinteberg, and Hakan Stattin. Facts, Frameworks, and Forecasts addresses the observation of noted criminologist Marvin Wolfgang that criminological theory had stagnated. This groundbreaking work, available in paperback for the first time, is as relevant now as when first published. It should be read by all concerned with data-related approaches to criminology."--Publisher's website
