From the Back Cover:

In recent years there has been a disturbing increase in both the prevalence and severity of girls’ problem behavior. Yet our knowledge regarding the development of antisocial behavior remains focused almost exclusively on boys and men. Fortunately, solid research into problem behavior in girls – a field that was virtually non-existent before the 1970s – is finally gaining ground.

Understanding Girls' Problem Behavior presents a collection of recent studies that are shaping our understanding of the development of problem behavior in girls. Most chapters feature longitudinal data and a focus on theory development. They include studies that begin with the maturing girl, follow her through adolescence to adulthood, and conclude when she herself becomes a parent. The processes involved in initiating, establishing, and potentially overcoming problem behavior are vividly illustrated through new findings and theories from fields including clinical psychology, sociology, developmental psychology and criminology.

Offering rich insights from leading international scholars, Understanding Girls’ Problem Behavior is sure to inspire further advances in a critical new field of contemporary research.
