Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) • Executive functions are hypothesized to increase the risk of engaging antisocial behavior in the onset, persistence and desistance of these behaviors over the lifespan. This study examines the relationship between executive function performances and violent risk assessment. We studied the profile of 23 male forensic inpatients who were assessed with the VRAG and the HCR-20 and executive functions (The Tower of London, The Modified Card Sorting Test, The Stroop Test, and The Verbal Fluencies). We will discuss the associations between antisocial behavior and executive functions and their implications in terms of assessment and treatment.
