Description

A small minority of children and adolescents can be dangerous, violent and murderous. Gwyneth Boswell researched this field throughout the 1990s. Having identified an urgent need for an assembly of evidence about aetiology and treatment of these young people, she has brought together a formidable body of academic and professional experts, specifically to address the question ?Why??.
