Chapter 3 identifies, reviews, and provides references to reviews of research relevant for various factors assessed in Miller cases. The first section reviews research on serious and violent offending and re-offending among adolescents, patterns of life-course offending, and research specifically on homicides by juveniles. The next section reviews neuroscience and psychological research on adolescent decision making and risk taking. The research on personality and psychopathology of adolescent offenders is reviewed, followed by research on factors related to youths’ amenability to rehabilitation as well as what is known about the effectiveness of various interventions to reduce re-offending among youth. Finally, the chapter offers background and research on structured assessment tools useful for assessing the characteristics associated with the Miller immaturity factors.
