This one-day workshop will focus on recent research investigating the many different pathways through which children and adolescents develop a propensity to act in an antisocial and aggressive manner and the implications of this research for both the assessment and treatment of antisocial individuals.

Antisocial and aggressive youths are a significant concern for the juvenile justice system, the education system, and the mental health system. Despite the fact that a great deal of research has been conducted with such youths, interventions provided in each of these systems have often not been guided by this research.

The purpose of this workshop is to describe research that has differentiated among subgroups of antisocial and aggressive children and adolescents, each showing somewhat distinct causal factors. The workshop will focus on understanding the developmental mechanisms that may be disrupted by these risk factors and how these mechanisms may differ across groups. A specific focus of this discussion will be on research conducted by Dr. Frick over the past 25 years that has identified a group of antisocial youth with callous-unemotional traits who seem to have deficits in their conscience development.
