The volume includes 14 chapters by 19 contributors working at or in collaboration with the Oregon Learning Center in Eugene, where the research has been ongoing. An introductory chapter traces the history of the research program and highlights theoretical, methodological, and substantive advances. The remaining chapters are organized into two sections: Development of Antisocial Behavior and Interventions for Antisocial Behavior. The chapters on the development of antisocial behavior begin with the early childhood development of coercive family behavior in the home. The conceptual models integrate the influence of parents’ discipline practices, peer relations, depression, stress, and many other factors over the course of development. Empirical tests of the models show how these factors influence and in many cases are influenced by child deviance. Interesting questions are addressed along the way, such as precisely how discipline practices exert influence on child deviance, how peers help "train" deviance, and the emergence of adolescent depression, to mention a few.
