MORALES CORDOVA, Hugo. Associate factors and development trajectories of the antisocial behavior during the adolescence: prevention of the juvenile violence in latin america. Interam. j. psychol. [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.1, pp. 129-142. ISSN 0034-9690.

Several causes of the antisocial behavior during the adolescence seems to respond not only to the combination of many risk located along the different levels of human development, but also to cultural and historical, social processes affecting, in many ways, to specific generations during their early childhood. This paper revises the main explicative theories about antisocial behavior during the adolescence and tries to reflect them, emphasizing on the theory of the Neuropsychological Taxonomy of the antisocial behavior proposed by Terrie E. Moffitt. Moreover, some studies are mentioned due to the fact that they confirm the cross-cultural validity of Moffitt's theoretical model and its contributions to the design of prevention programs against antisocial behavior for youngsters and adolescents in Latin America.
