Center Publication Identified as Significant Contributor in the Study of Behavior Disorders

Psychology Progress, a Canadian establishment dedicated to promoting the international field of Psychology, recently named the Center publication, Lethal and other serious assaults: Disentangling gender and context, as a key research article in the study of behavior disorders. The article highlights key findings from a study conducted by Center Director Carol E. Jordan (principal investigator), James Clark from the College of Social Work, Richard Charnigo from the College of Public Health; and Adam Pritchard from the University of South Florida.  The study aimed to better understand the complexities surrounding battered women who kill or seriously assault a violent partner.

The article appeared in the May 2012 issue of the journal Crime & Delinquency.  The article abstract can be found at Psychology Progress; a link to the full text article is included.
