Blurb/Shorttext:
Murder, rape, corruption and gang wars, sounds like something out of a bad action movie but for many it is their way of life and not a movie they can stop. Many people today live with the constant threat of attack and the threat is often not by some stranger but someone they know, their neighbour, their uncle, their father, their domestic worker and on occasion even their own mother. As crime escalates more people are asking the question, “Why this rapid increase in crime and why is there such an increase in the number of violent crimes?” South Africa is well known, unfortunately, for its high crime rate and in particular it’s exceptionally high violent crime rate. South Africa is rated in the top 10 for the highest murders per capita (UNDOC 2011). Over the past 20 years the number of violent crimes has progressively increased and the reason for this increase needs to be examined. The thesis proposed examines trends between developed and developing countries to find any links between crime and psychopathology and in addition the etiology, prevalence and prevention of psychopathology.
