Associate Professor Dr. Chad Posick Published in Victims & Offenders

At the end of last month, an article written by Georgia Southern Criminal Justice and Criminology Associate Professor, Dr. Chad Posick, and his co-writers, Emily Lasko and Richard E. Tremblay, entitled “On the Need for a Biopsychosocial Victimology: A Foundational Model for Focusing Violence Prevention on Women and Children” was published in the journal, Victims & Offenders. The article notes that violent behavior is frequently observable early in the life course and that violence prevention must focus on biological and psychosocial processes early in human development. Therefore, the authors develop and present a biopsychosocial model for violence prevention and intervention that emphasizes the needs of expectant and new mothers along with their children.
