(p.423) CHAPTER 20 What We Have Learned? Directions for Future Research and Policy
The Development of Persistent Criminality

Joanne Savage

Oxford University Press

This chapter integrates what was learned from the chapters of the book with the scholarly literature and propose suggestions for future research and policy. The chapter encourages future researchers to study topics such as early onset and family factors in greater depth, so we can understand the meaning of their impact. Examples are provided. The chapter discusses situational factors such as family and neighborhoods, and peers. Nuances, such as interaction effects, indirect effects, and reciprocal causation, are emphasized. Several issues, which are often overlooked, such as resilience and reentry, are explored as well as avenues for conceptualizing the problem of persistent offending more holistically. Here, the chapter recommends some links to developmental psychology. Finally, the chapter discusses policy implications including interventions, developmental prevention, criminal justice intervention, and informal social control.

Keywords:   chronic offending, risk factors, early onset, child abuse, reciprocal effects, indirect effects, resilience, developmental criminology, developmental prevention, policy, informal social control, juvenile justice
