Childhood economic disadvantage and antisocial behavior: Intervening factors and pathways
Chiara Berti and
Children and Youth Services Review, 2019, vol. 97, issue C, 120-126
Concerns over the number of children living in poverty arise from our knowledge of the problems children face due to poverty. Many researchers have pointed out the psycho-social outcomes of growing up poor, including antisocial behavior. Literature concerning the development of crime has documented a wide range of factors that may intervene between exposure to disadvantage and the development of delinquency, and that could mediate the linkages between poverty and crime.
