|Résumé, etc. :||In this book, the authors combine a concern with personal destructiveness and an interest in mental health problems, and describe what they see as the overlap. Their focus is on the perspectives and motives of people who repetitively act out. This differs from more familiar research questions that have to do with violence propensities of patients diagnosed with a serious mental illness. The authors confined their study to descriptions of prison behavior of convicted offenders who have acted out in confinement settings. The book begins with a statistical section that describes comprehensive patterns of behavior incidents, moving from cross-sectional pictures to sequential ones and from unidimensional to multidimensional views. Next they examine detailed accounts of the behavior of prisoners over time, grouped in terms of the content of their behavior. Finally, they outline a regenerative enterprise that they believe uses some of their methods and findings. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved).|
