Psychological factors in crime prevention.
AbstractThis chapter on psychological factors in crime prevention begins by examining pre-delinquency. It then investigates the idea of eugenics. Next, the chapter discusses the control of sources of suggestions, followed by a section on the control of drugs. Punishment and crime prevention are explored, looking specifically at deterrent effect. A final consideration in crime prevention in its psychological aspects is the possible contribution of the educational system. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
