Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.206
Pages:

Synopsis: 
Risk factors for delinquency were evaluated in a teenage population in Trinidad and were found to include low academic achievement, living environment and family arrests. Self-esteem, punishment and family structure were not associated with delinquency in this population.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Various risk factors for juvenile delinquency have been identified but the extent to which they are applicable in Trinidad and Tobago has not been investigated. We conducted a case-control study comparing risk factors in delinquent and non-delinquent boys.

Variation of Homicidal and Suicidal Behaviour within Trinidad and Tobago and the Associated Ecological Risk Factors

Issue: 
Pages: 
319–24
Synopsis: 
Regional disaggregating of national statistics regarding homicide and suicide reveal geographic and ethnic variation of these mortality related behaviours. This suggests that victims of homicide and suicide have a different set of risk factors that are in part explained by where they are located geographically and prevention and analysis can only be addressed if the regional variations are understood and explained.

Caribbean Contributions to Contemporary Psychiatric Psychopathology

Issue: 
Pages: 
442–6
Synopsis: 
The burgeoning migration of Caribbean people to England in the twentieth century resulted in high reported rates of psychosis for this migrant population. Caribbean research has revealed the existence of hostile racial and environmental challenges in Britain as the primary cause of this condition. These findings have significantly shifted the pendulum of understanding of the aetiology of psychosis from a genetic to a biopsychosocial position.
