Boys at Risk for Committing Violence—Some Key Questions

In taking a bio-psycho-social orientation to boys at risk from conception to toddlerhood, this conference expands the usual scope of origins of violent criminality. Going beyond social construction, the conference will feature speakers who place the origins of violence in a contemporary developmental context. Some of the key questions the conference will address are: What may be different about the neurobiological make up of boys that may create a greater predisposition for violence and under what social conditions may this occur?How may the exposure to the social environment that some small boys are raised in interact with this neurobiological predisposition to make it more or less likely that violent behavior will result?How does the socio-economic macro-environment color both the neuro-biology and immediate caregiving environment in ways that may lead to violence?
