(full text only available in Dutch

Summary

This report consists of two studies: a largescale study of the psychosocial characteristics of male inmates in 2017 (and a comparison with the situation in 2003, N=2.079) and a study of the neurobiological characteristics of male inmates in 2017 (N=283). Sub-questions address, (1) psychosocial criminogenic factors and neurobiological characteristics of male detainees, (2) the association between these factors, (3) the possible creation of detainee profiles based on these factors. Furthermore, (4) an overview of the available information after an inmate starts his incarceration has been made. In addition, we (5) provide some information about psychiatric symptoms and (6) have made a start with the development of norm scores for the detained population for the neurobiological tasks that have been used in this study. It is the first time this has been done in the Netherlands.
