Abstract [en]

Psychopathy can not be applied in adolescence today, but a psychopathic development usually starts early in life with conduct disorder and callous-unemotional traits. This study is reviewing whether CU-traits generate delinquent behavior, or if delinquent behavior generates CU-traits in adolescence. The data was collected from a longitudinal survey study. A sample of 811 students in 7thand 8th and 9th schools in different socioeconomic areas was collected. The results show differences between the sexes. Boys with already existing CU-traits tend to develop delinquent behavior but girls develop CU-traits after engaging in a delinquent behavior. Further research considering CU-traits stability over time in adolescence is needed for an early predicting of antisocial and grade from seven Swedish

Abstract [sv]

Idag kan inte begreppet psykopati appliceras på ungdomar, men en psykopatisk utveckling börjar ofta tidigt i livet med uppförandestörningsbeteende samt callous-unemotional traits s.k. känslokalla drag. Studien undersöker om CU-traits driver fram kriminalitet, eller om kriminalitet driver fram CU-traits hos ungdomar. Urvalet erhölls genom en longitudinell enkätstudie. Försökspersonerna bestod av 811 elever i sjunde, åttonde och nionde klass från sammanlagt sju svenska skolor i varierande socioekonomiska områden. Resultaten visar på skillnader mellan könen. CU-traits hos pojkar tenderar att leda till ökat kriminellt beteende men för flickor finner vi det motsatta, att kriminalitet driver fram CU-traits. Framtida forskning gällande CU-traits stabilitet under längre tid i ungdomsåren är nödvändig för att tidigt kunna predicera antisocialt och kriminellt beteende.
