Criminality is a significant problem that harms individual victims, for example by causing injuries, mental health problems and material damage, as well as society. Since a large proportion of offenders who have been convicted recidivate, it is essential to focus on preventing relapse into criminal behavior. For her PhD thesis, Fleur Kraanen explores criminal behavior and (problematic) substance use disorders. In the first part of her thesis, Kraanen analyses the prevalence of substance use disorders in perpetrators of specific offences such intimate partner violence (IPV), general violence (GV) and sexual violence (SV). The second part focuses on substance abuse in relation to IPV perpetration.
