Self-determination theory (SDT; Deci & Ryan, 2000) has been used as a framework for investigating the psychological mechanisms underlying athletes' prosocial and antisocial behavior
(Hodge & Lonsdale, 2011).
Neighborhood risk and development of antisocial behavior
High quality coach-athlete connections may protect against antisocial behavior
and support prosocial behavior (coaches who maintain good links with their athletes diminish antisocial behavior
There may be other factors that lead to both increased TV watching during childhood and adolescence and antisocial behaviors
The importance of studying goals as they relate to antisocial behavior
has been highlighted in the work of certain authors (Carroll et al.
Explaining the Co-occurrence of Antisocial Behavior
There are few well-designed international comparisons of student antisocial behavior
; some show similarities in rates of antisocial behavior
and others show differences, particularly in relation to substance use.
Although early puberty did not affect either a preference for mornings or evenings or the cortisol ratio, it was related to more antisocial behavior
in boys and relational aggression in girls.
This paper summarizes the heritability of each of these aspects or correlates of antisocial behavior
and discusses research attempting to unpack the genetic and environmental "black boxes" involved in antisocial behavior
, including studies investigating the influence of both biological and social risk factors and how they might be mediated by genetic and environmental factors.
Despite introducing several control variables into their model, these authors found that the use of corporal punishment predicted an increase in later antisocial behavior
One unique environmental common factor affected primarily the risk for adult antisocial behavior
and conduct disorder.
Moreover, 85 percent of severely maltreated boys with the low-activity MAOA gene developed antisocial behavior
by young adulthood.
