This special edition of Psychology, Crime & Law is the outcome of the 2nd International Center for Aggression Replacement Training (ICART) Conference, which was held from 22 to 24 September 2004 in Amsterdam. The point of departure for the conference was Arnold P. Goldstein's Aggression Replacement Training, but the European Violence in Psychiatry Research Group (EVIPRG) and Connecting (partnership for consultancy & training) also took care of presentations. This special issue opens with the obituary of Arnold P. Goldstein (see record 2005-13043-003), as published in a 2002 edition of the American Psychologist. Although several studies presented at the ICART conference "Working with Aggression and Violence" concern preliminary findings, it is hoped that the readers of Psychology, Crime & Law will find the results and discussions collected in this special issue about assessment, prevention, and treatment of aggressive, violent and criminal behaviour interesting and stimulating.
