Research Abstract

Professor Lösel's research interests are in the fields of criminology, clinical psychology, psychology and law, assessment, and programme evaluation. He has worked, for example, on juvenile delinquency, prisons and their alternatives, offender treatment, football hooliganism, school bullying, personality disordered offenders, resilience, close relationships, risk assessment for child abuse, and evaluation methodology. Since 1999, he has been conducting a combined prospective longitudinal and experimental study of 700 children and their families to investigate factors that either fuel or prevent the development of antisocial behaviour.
