The general theory of crime by Gottfredson and Hirschi argues that crime is a function of low self-control and criminal opportunity, and some research supports this point (Armstrong et al., 2020; Beaver et al., 2010; Palumbo, 1992; Shoepfer et al., 2019).

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: Domestic violence has become a serious social issue that plagues society and has gained increased attention across the nation. In the United States, 1.3 million women are victims of maleperpetrated intimate partner violence annually (Terrance et al., 2014). Furthermore, one in five women has reported being physically assaulted by a male partner (Plumm & Terrance, 2009).

Although data shows that biological parents are the main perpetrators of child abuse and neglect, a family structure composed of a single parent and nonbiological partner are also associated with increased risk.
