Antisocial behavior has been the object of investigation in many studies seeking to establish its etiological factors as well as risk factors which help to perpetuate such behavior over the course of the individual's life. In this paper, we seek to classify and clarify risk factors underlying the origin and development of antisocial behaviors from childhood to adolescence. Our final goal is to establish an explicative model of antisocial behavior that allows us to detect risk factors and to set up specific interventions for preventing and/or alleviating its effects. In this sense, we will observe the existence and influence of certain risk factors in the intrapersonal realm (temperament, verbal intelligence, etc.) as well as the interpersonal (family environment, child-raising, peer groups, social and cultural context), all of which have greater or lesser weight in the rise and evolution of antisocial behavior. These factors are then essential in the design of intervention programs. (Contains 3 figures and 1 footnote.)
