(LEC 3) (3 cr) PSYC 4027 The Psychology of Criminal Conduct While many researchers have argued that “nothing works”, there is mounting evidence that criminal behaviour is subject to modification using scientific principles. The psychology of criminal conduct (PCC) conceptualizes criminal behaviour from the social learning theory perspective that antisocial behaviour is under the control of antecedent and consequent event such that criminality is the likely outcome when the reinforcers for antisocial behaviour outweigh the costs of the behaviour. Treatment programs grounded in this theoretical framework have been demonstrated repeatedly to be effective with offender populations. The analysis of psychological variables has substantively broadened our understanding of criminality as well as our attempts to reduce it. This course offers an in-depth exploration of issues related to the practice of psychology in the prison milieu. Prerequisite: PSYC 1106/1107 and 3606/3607.
