Pattern and setting

No single behaviour carries special significance. The outlook is determined by the frequency and intensity of antisocial behaviours, the variety of types, the number of settings in which they occur, and their persistence. The main settings where antisocial behaviour in children and adolescents is manifested are home, school, and in public. For general populations of children, agreement about the presence of antisocial behaviour at home and at school is low—the correlation between parent and teacher ratings on the same measures is only 0.2 to 0.3. There are many children who are perceived to be mildly or moderately antisocial at home but well behaved at school, and vice versa. However, for more severe antisocial behaviour, there are usually manifestations both at home and at school. Concerns about antisocial behaviour in public occur more commonly in adolescents and often leads to police involvement.
