About the Course:
Crick and Dodge’s (1994) reformulated Social Information Processing (SIP) theory concerns decision making processes, and is particularly salient when considering aggressive and criminal behavior. The purpose of the study presented in this article was to partially test SIP theory on a sample of 330 adult offenders using vignettes with particular attention on self-reported situational decision making.
