1. The Makings of a Terrorist: Psychological Factors Contributing to the Spread of Terrorism Around the World - Dr. Seifert offers a unique perspective on what causes terrorism. She looks at the brutal atmosphere and environment in which many terrorists are raised and sees signs that are common to any violent criminal:

  • Children without parents
  • Strict upbringing
  • Lack of parental nurturing
  • Consistent exposure to community violence and war at an early age

She discusses why many terrorists may be suffering from attachment disorders and how this affects their moral and social development. Using psychological research in this area, she offers a profile of a terrorist based on some of her many violence assessment tools and suggests how early intervention in impoverished areas of the world can help terrorism from spreading.
