Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This article considers the potential of preschool interventions to prevent crime. It highlights how certain kinds of preschool programs may help decrease crime later in life, and how prevention during early childhood can be viewed as reducing levels of early behavior problems and improving socialemotional development. It identifies some possible pathways of prevention, which includes child-and parent-based pathways. This is followed by a discussion of some interventions that target both child-and parent-based pathways. This article also considers some cross-cutting issues that are important across various intervention strategies in prevention science in preschool.
