We chatted about Moffitt’s adolescence limited and life course persistent antisocial behavior model, and the newer Loeber and Burke model of different developmental pathways to externalizing and internalizing outcomes. And recent work by Loeber and colleagues on how cognitive impulsivity and intelligence are associated with the age-crime curve.
We also discussed an article in which the authors predicted age 15 externalizing behavior from exposure to cocaine in utero.
And finally, we tried to think about how to intervene in the different types of externalizing behaviors.
