📙 The Origins and Development of Problem Behavior Theory: The Collected Works of Richard Jessor by Richard Jessor (auth.) — download pdf


This book, the first in a series of collected works, traces the evolution of Problem Behavior Theory from its inception to its current status as a widely used framework for understanding and addressing risky behavior in youth and young adults. The theory is explored from its beginnings as a study of deviant behavior and alcohol abuse in a tri-ethnic community through its expansion to include psychosocial aspects of development, risk and protective factors, and health behavior in the larger societal context of youth behavior. In its current form, Problem Behavior Theory constitutes an interdisciplinary approach to research personal and societal factors that are involved in both normative and problematic behavior. Chapters highlight the many contributions of the theory to social science and its potential for informing evidence-based intervention and prevention programs for youth and young adults.

Topics featured in this book include:

  • The Tri-Ethnic Community Study.
  • The Socialization of Problem Behavior in Youth Study.
  • The Young Adult Follow-up Study.
  • The problem behavior syndrome.
  • The cross-national generality of Problem Behavior Theory.
  • Problem Behavior Theory and adolescent pro-social behavior.

The Origins and Development of Problem Behavior Theory is a must-have resource for researchers/professors, clinicians, and related professionals as well as graduate students in social and developmental psychology, criminology/criminal justice, public health, social work, and related disciplines.
