Assessing conduct problems in the classroom

AbstractWe explore the conduct problem (CP) construct as assessed in the school setting, focusing on three widely used teacher judgment measures yielding CP scores: the Behavior Problem Checklist (BPC; Quay & Peterson, 1979, 1983), the Child Behavior Checklist-Teacher's Report Form (CBCL-TRF; Achenbach & Edelbrock, 1986), and the Conners Teacher Rating Scale (CTRS; Conners, 1969, 1973, 1988). The analysis was based on the three steps proposed by Skinner (1981) for evaluating categories or dimensions of pathology. Our review documents some problems of the internal and external properties of the CP scores, and it also demonstrates that the theoretical meaning of the construct is somewhat ambiguous. The implications of these problems for the use of the construct in clinical and research settings are explored.

Observation of radio-frequency three quantum resonances for the 22S12-22P12 (lamb shift) transition in atomic hydrogen

AbstractThree quantum radio-frequency resonances have been observed for the (n = 2) Lamb shift transition in a fast atomic hydrogen beam. The Bloch-Siegert shift agrees with that predicted by semiclassical theory, when all relevant levels are included.

Chapter 6 - Antisocial Personality Pattern

Publisher SummaryAntisocial personality is one of the best predictors of criminal behavior. This chapter explores the notion of antisocial personality in more depth, with discussions of different perspectives of antisocial personality. There are different meanings that can be assigned to the term “antisocial personality.” The first meaning is simply the extremes of normal dimensions of personality that are common to all. The second meaning is rooted in psychopathology, which considers antisocial personality as a mental disorder, sees it as unhealthy and abnormal, as a disease. The chapter outlines current knowledge of personality in general. The study of personality is one of the branches of psychology and the latest thinking about personality informs the understanding of criminal conduct. Criminology's position on personality and traces the remarkable transition in criminology's respect for personality is reviewed. The chapter also examines forensic/clinical psychology and psychiatry's preoccupation with mental disorder through the study of antisocial personality disorder and psychopathy. Finally, it concludes with a critique of forensic/mental health conceptualizations of antisocial personality.

Technical Notes

Publisher SummaryThis chapter presents technical notes on various aspects related to criminal behavior. It explores variability in criminal behavior and illustrates the extent and magnitude of the variation. Variability is found within most samples of individuals, be they male or female, black or white, young or old, upper-class or lower-class. The age (being young), gender (being male), and several other variables are major correlates and predictors of criminal behavior. The chapter discusses some definitional issues when no act is intrinsically criminal and aggregated crime rates and the ecological fallacy. The regional or aggregated correlates of aggregated crime rates have something to say about the correlates of individual behavior. The ecological fallacy is the assumption that the aggregated correlates of aggregated crime rates imply knowledge of the correlates of individual behavior. The ecological fallacy is a particular threat when the aggregated correlate is a measure of the membership composition of the area. The effects of social structure on individual behavior are best established through studies of individuals in different social contexts.

Review articleManifestations of extramammary disease seen on imaging the breast

AbstractInvolvement of the breast in disease processes not inherent to the breast can prove a diagnostic challenge. A variety of cases is presented of both common and uncommon conditions, some of which show unique mammographic features, while others have a wide and non-specific imaging differential diagnosis. The cases are grouped into four categories: calcifications in the breast; changes confined to the skin; masses in the breast; and generalized changes in the breast. Some conditions overlap into several of these categories.
