Hi there. When I tried to understand the underlying cause of crime, I found that many people would emphasize the role of parents even though we are not discussing juvenile crime. I am confused about it… Could anyone kindly help me with it?

A considerable body of research posits that offending is the result of a natural predisposition that has its roots in biology (associated with genetic, hormonal, or neurological factors). However, research has also shown that the impact of biological factors becomes less salient once environmental and social factors are taken into account. Some scholars would highlight the importance of parenting as being a crucial factor in the development of self-control. Lack of self-control is associated with a higher propensity towards offending behavior and a range of other negative life outcomes (in terms of education, employment, and relationships).

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
