Biopsychosocial models of criminal behavior are quickly growing as a prominent area of research in criminology. However, as most criminological research still tends to focus solely on the social influences on crime and violence, this issue aims to advance our knowledge on the interface between various social influences, psychological and personality traits, and biological factors as key predictors of criminal behavior. Specifically, this issue focuses on the biopsychosocial predictors of violent behavior, using models that address at least two of the three components of the biopsychosocial perspective, to better understand how these factors play a role in predicting and understanding violent offending.
