Violence is observed in all levels and expressions of biological and social life. However, human violence has the distinction of being greatly altered by the dynamics of individual and group development, which takes place in the context of our world views - view of reality, human nature, the purpose of life, and laws governing human relationships. Criminality is related to deficient skills for resolving interpersonal problems and to deficient behavioural skills in social interaction; therefore, the prevention and/or intervention with training programs in these skills is necessary. Consequently, prison is an institution that strives to combine two different and contradictory goals. On the one hand, its purpose is to isolate individuals that are considered threats to society and to impose an exemplary punishment, and on the other hand it aims at their social reintegration by the means of correction. This new book gathers the latest research from around the globe in the field of violent crime and prisons with topics such as unity building as violence prevention, violence and college students, female inmates attitudes towards same-sex relationships, art therapy in prison and the link between high environmental temperatures and violent behaviour.
