Crime and autism spectrum disorder: myths and mechanisms

BREWER, Neil and YOUNG, Robyn L.

2015    223 Pages    (Jessica Kingsley Publishers)

ISBN 13: 9781849054041   

Having autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can - given certain situational conditions - make individuals more vulnerable to becoming caught up in criminal activity and vulnerable to unfavourable interactions once in the criminal justice system.

Having autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can - given certain situational conditions - make individuals more vulnerable to becoming caught up in criminal activity and vulnerable to unfavourable interactions once in the criminal justice system. Guided by empirical research, psychological theory and illustrative case studies involving adults with ASD who have been implicated in crimes, Robyn L. Young and Neil Brewer explain why. They examine the pivotal cognitive, social and behavioural characteristics unique to ASD (such as weak Theory of Mind, restricted interests and acute sensory sensitivities) that - individually or in interaction - may contribute to individuals becoming involved in illegal activities. They then discuss how these same characteristics can result in ongoing ineffective interaction with the criminal justice system. Arguing that the forensic assessment of individuals with ASD requires substantial redevelopment to clarify the key deficits contributing to criminal behaviour, the authors highlight the need for, and desirable nature of, intervention programs to minimize the criminal vulnerability of adults with ASD and to prepare them for interactions with the criminal justice system. A final section raises some major unanswered questions and issues for future research. This book will be of immeasurable interest to criminal justice professionals including probation officers, social workers, clinical and forensic psychologists, police officers, lawyers and judges, as well as students of these professions.

Six million people in the UK provide unpaid care for disabled or elderly relatives or neighbours. Their job is long, loney and hard, yet they are largely unnoticed and there is limited support and no formal training. As a result, carers suffer frequent damage to physical and mental health. Oddly, though carers are, by definition, anything but selfish pigs, they are prone to feelings of guilt, largely brought on by fatigue and isolation. Author Hugh Marriott, himself a long-term carer, has written this book for them. His aim is to bring into the open everything he wished he had been told when he first thought of becoming a carer. The book airs such topics as sex, thoughts of murder, coping with incontinence, and dealing with the responses of friends and officials who fail to understand. [less]
