About the Course:

This Bulletin reports on the psychiatric, psychological, and criminological research linking animal abuse to juvenile- and adultperpetrated violence. It addresses the challenge of defining animal abuse and examines the difficulty of deriving accurate incidence and prevalence data for this behavior. It also explores the relationships between animal abuse and conduct disorder (CD), analyzes the motives of child and adolescent animal abusers, and considers the contexts that may lead to the emergence of animal abuse as a symptom of psychological disorder.

This course is based on the reading-based online, Animal Abuse and Youth Violence: Juvenile Justice Bulletin created by Frank R. Ascione in 0.
