Abstract: This paper will examine the relationship between post-prison recidivism and the static and dynamic characteristics of roughly 30,000 adults released from prison in Illinois during 2007. In addition to the inclusion of traditional static characteristics (age, race, gender, prior criminal history, substance abuse history, etc), the analyses also incorporate measures of institutional adjustment (the extent and nature of the inmate’s disciplinary record while incarcerated), the characteristics of the community the inmate was released to, and the releasees performance on parole (i.e., results of urinalysis tests, ability to obtain employment, and residential stability). These individual- and community-level characteristics will be used to explain patterns in post-release recidivism--overall arrests and specifically for crimes of violence--during the 3-year period following release from prison using different multivariate statistical approaches. The implications for offender risk assessment and recidivism research will be discussed.

Abstract: The Delinquency Reduction Outcome Profile (DROP) is a new situational-judgment test (SJT) designed to measure appropriateness of social decision-making by delinquent youth. It combines both a typical SJT scoring method, as well as a Multi-Trait-Multi-Method approach (MTMM), enabling the assessment of latent dimensions, which are linked to distinct strategies used by youth to cope in situations. We present the validation of the DROP on a sample of 1,922 young detainees and discuss its practical interests as an efficient prognostic tool to predict positive and negative outcomes, and for monitoring changes in educational programs designed to improve social skills and reduce recidivism.

Publication Type: Symposium Paper
Abstract: Most psychologists think terrorism is an issue for those who work in the field of national security, but it is actually and old and growing problem. Professor Hart will review the nature and dynamics of terrorism, conceptualizing it as a multi-level phenomenon -- one that involves consideration of both individuals and the various groups to which they belong. In this respect, terrorism is similar to many other forms of violence, including violence by criminal organizations or gangs. Next, he will outline general evidence-based principles or guidelines for terrorism risk assessment, arguing that they require psychologists to collaborate actively as part of multi-displinary teams. Throughout his talk, Professor Hart will emphasize how understanding terrorism can help us to better understand violence and violence risk assessment more generally.

Abstract: How can sociologists establish empirical, theoretical and methodological clarity about “race” as a social construction? How can sociologists contribute toward a sociology of racial conceptualization? How can we conceptualize race as dynamic, contingent, multi-dimensional and multi-level social construction? In 2003 the American Sociological Association published a statement on the importance of collecting and doing scientific research on race. Nearly a decade later, the need to continue to unpack the dynamics contributing to historic and on-going race-based inequalities in health, housing, education, the criminal justice system and the labor market among other social institutions, remains one of the most important research challenges for sociologists and other scholars of racial stratification. While a number of scholars have alluded to the disconnect that exists between the conceptualization of race as a dynamic, contingent, multi-dimensional and multi-level socially constructed phenomenon, there continues to be a disconnect between this theoretical insight and research design and data collection in both qualitative and quantitative research. In this paper I sketch the outlines of a conceptual model of race that is anchored in unpacking the multi-dimensional (e.g., self-identity, socially defined racial status, cumulative lived experience and life course embodiment, etc.) and multi-level (e.g., micro-level/individual, meso-level/institutional and macro-levels/societal) facets of “race.”

Abstract: This study uses three datasets to examine the reporting, substantiation, and processing of child sexual abuse cases in Pennsylvania: (a) contact and reporting to police data compiled by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape from reports by all rape crisis centers in the state, (b) reporting and substantiation data from the Pennsylvania Office of Children, Youth, and Families, (c) sex crimes against children sentencing data from the Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing. County-level data obtained from the Census are used to provide contextualization, and time trends are used to examine the effects of legal factors on the processing of sexual abuse cases.
