This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. Early anti-social behavior is a key risk factor for delinquency and crime throughout life. Early family/parent training (EFPT) is an important intervention/prevention effort. There are several theories why EFPT may cause a reduction in child behavior problems. For ex., EFPT programs are based on the notion that quality of parent-child relations will facilitate learning of control over impulsive and aggressive behavior, thus reducing disruptive behavior. Also, these programs attempt to change the social contingencies in the family

The author underlines the importance of this understanding which, he argues, could lead to the creation of more effective urban policies. This study links infrastructure requirements and supply to the behavior of urban life and to the existing income
