Robert Eme, PhD, professor of clinical psychology, the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Schaumburg recently published an article entitled “Sex differences in temperament: A partial explanation for the sex difference in the prevalence of serious antisocial behaviors” in the Aggression and Violent Behavior peer-reviewed journal.
According to the article abstract, temperamental traits have long been understood to be important constructs for understanding normal and abnormal development. But their relevance to criminal justice has only recently been recognized.
