Treating Antisocial Behavior

Treating Antisocial Behavior

(p.175) 8 Treating Antisocial Behavior
Moral Development and Reality

John C. Gibbs

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes a multi-component treatment program for antisocial behavior that incorporates a wide variety of social perspective-taking opportunities: EQUIP. More specifically, it examines the two basic approaches integrated in EQUIP to treat antisocial behavior: the mutual help approach and the cognitive behavioral approach. The chapter first considers the challenge presented by aggressive and other antisocial youths to the mutual help approach, along with the value and limitations of mutual help programs. It then explains how the mutual help and cognitive behavioral approaches induce social perspective-taking, with particular emphasis on cognitive restructuring and cultivation of a mature morality through perspective-taking in social decision-making. It also looks at issues affecting the implementation of the EQUIP and concludes with illustrations of more intensive perspective-taking treatments available for severe offenders.

Keywords:   treatment, antisocial behavior, social perspective-taking, EQUIP, mutual help approach, cognitive behavioral approach, antisocial youths, cognitive restructuring, morality, social decision-making
