A psychiatrist and an internationally recognized expert on violence, Dorothy Otnow Lewis has spent the last quarter century studying the minds of killers. Among the notorious murderers she has examined are Ted Bundy, Arthur Shawcross and Mark David Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon. Now she shares her groundbreaking discoveries -and the chilling encounters that led to them. From a juvenile court in Connecticut to the psychiatric wards of New York City's Bellevue Hospital, from maximum security prisons to the corridors of death row, Lewis and her colleague, the eminent neurologist Jonathan Pincus, search to understand the origins of violence. Concluding with a chilling interview with an executioner -a killer sanctioned by the state - Guilty by Reason of Insanity is an utterly absorbing odyssey that will forever change the way you think about crime, punishment and the law itself.

Erfurt, Columbine, Emsdetten - diese Orte sind zum Inbegriff für "School Shootings", also Amokläufe beziehungsweise schwere Gewalttaten durch Jugendliche an Schulen geworden. Was haben diese Gewalttaten gemeinsam? Wer sind die Täter? Welche Rolle spielen die Medien und das gesellschaftliche Umfeld? Wie entwickeln die Täter ihre tödlichen Phantasien? Frank J. Robertz und Ruben Wickenhäuser vom Berliner Institut für Gewaltprävention und angewandte Kriminologie (IGaK) tragen in diesem anwendungsorientierten Fachbuch zum Thema die unterschiedlichen Aspekte anhand bekannter Fälle zusammen: Präventionsmöglichkeiten, Einschätzung von Bedrohungen, Krisenintervention, Umgang mit traumatisierten Schulgemeinschaften und auffälligen Jugendlichen, Hilfestellungen für Lehrer, Polizisten und Eltern. Ziel ist stets die realistische Gefahreneinschätzung und -vorbeugung. Inklusive Arbeitsmaterialien für Schulpsychologen, Krisenteams und Lehrerkollegien mit Checklisten für die Vorbereitung des Ernstfalls.

Das Buch beschreibt den internationalen Erkenntnisstand kriminaltherapeutischer psychosozialer Maßnahmen unter Haftbedingungen. Die Ergebnisse dieser Arbeit legen nahe, daß Haft ohne rückfallpräventive Behandlung auf die Insassen labilisierend wirkt und gerade bei längerem Aufenthalt ihre Gefährlichkeit steigert, was sowohl dem Resozialisationsanspruch als auch dem Sicherheitsbedürfnis der Allgemeinheit entgegenläuft. Zugleich zeigt diese Arbeit jedoch auch, daß der justizielle Druck therapeutisch sinnvoll genutzt werden kann, indem auf die vorhandene Behandlungsmotivation der Insassen mit spezifischen Angeboten reagiert wird. Zur Umsetzung dieser Erkenntnisse fordert das Buch zu Änderungen in der Struktur des Strafvollzuges auf.

Animal abuse has been an acknowledged problem for centuries, but only within the past few decades has scientific research provided evidence that the maltreatment of animals often overlaps with violence toward people. The variants of violence, including builying or assaults in a schoolyard, child abuse in homes, violence between adult intimate partners, community hostility in our streets and neighborhoods, and even the context of war, are now the subject of concerted research efforts. Very often, the association of these forms of violence with crueity to animals has been found. The perpetrators of such inhumane treatment are often children and adolescents. Children and Animals: Exploring the Roots of Kindness and Cruelty presents the current scientific and professional wisdom about the relation between the maltreatment of animals and interpersonal violence directed toward other human beings. However, the author, Frank R. findings in language that will be understandable to parents, teachers, counselors, clergy, animal welfare professionals, foster parents, mental health professionals, youth workers, law enforcement professionals, and any one else whose work or interest crosses into the lives of children and adolescents.
