About this Book

Understanding Girls' Problem Behavior presents an overview of recent studies by leading researchers into key aspects of the development of problem behavior in girls.

  • Integrates interdisciplinary research into girls' problem behaviors (e.g. aggression, antisocial behavior, rule breaking)
  • Unique in seeking to understand girls' problem behaviors in their own right
  • Follows the maturing girl from adolescence to adulthood, concluding at the point where she herself becomes a parent and forms new relationships
  • Gives attention to the critical contexts of problem behavior development-society and neighborhood,   as well as family and peer contexts
