What separates a person prone to anger outbursts, defiant behavior, and impulse control issues who doesn’t commit crimes from another person with the same behavior and emotional profile who does go on to commit criminal acts? If we can effectively screen for this combination, then we are well on our way to being able to understand it, and then treat it toward prevention. Join Dr. Jerrod Brown as he takes you on a journey into conduct disorder and disruptive, impulse control behavior profiles and how they may be associated with a propensity to commit violent crime. After taking this training, you will be equipped with the skills to prevent the possible commission of a violent act before it occurs, helping to potentially save multiple lives in the process!
Disruptive, impulse-control, and conduct disorders are characterized by symptoms of aggression, angry outbursts, antisocial behaviors, self-control problems, defiance of authority figures, impulsivity, and uncooperative and defiant behaviors. In combination with other environmental, family, socio-emotional, and physical health factors, these multi-faceted conditions can contribute to a host of consequences, including an increased risk of criminality. This training is designed to increase understanding of the causes, consequences, and implications these disorders have on criminal offending behavior. Interviewing, screening, ans intervention approaches will also be discussed in this training. Related topics considered during this training will include criminal recidivism, anger, violence, and aggression, rumination, psychopathology, adverse childhood experiences, alexithymia, metacognition, substance misuse, head trauma, hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal (HPA) axis dysregulation, central, nervous system dysfunction, impulsivity, theory of mind, adaptive functioning, sleep problems, special needs populations, and antisocial behavior to name a few. Empirically based research findings will be discussed throughout this training.
