Risks associated with conduct disorder in girls by Tārā( )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conduct disorder is the second most common psychiatric disorder in adolescent girls. In a secondary analysis of an existing data set from a study of pregnant adolescent girls, recruited from three different sites in a Canadian city (N = 252), possible predictors of conduct disorder were examined. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Diagnostic Interview Schedule (DIS) was used to measure conduct disorder. To investigate possible risk factors, three instruments were used: (1) Childhood Trauma Questionnaire (CTQ), (2) Parental Bonding Instrument, and (3) Knowledge of Infant Development Inventory (KIDI). In a stepwise regression analysis, conduct disorder was found to be significantly associated with four risk factors: high levels of overall abuse as children, placement in foster care, few years of schooling and lack of paternal care. A possible preventive program, to encourage girls with conduct disorder to stay in school and cope with past histories of abuse, is discussed." --

1 edition published in 1990 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ellen Kitteridge is doing her best to put a personal but very public tragedy behind her. Trusting any man--especially one who radiates power and sensuality like Joe Carlini-- isn't easy, but it sure is fun. She's never felt more alive as she helps Joe track down whoever is stealing Carlini family secrets. Playing spy games, with lust heating every moment, has taken her way beyond her comfort zone--and now she's wondering if she's gone too far. Carlini Foods is Joe's life, but Ellen, with her perfect mix of vixen and vulnerability, makes him realize how hungry his heart has become. Fate has made her his co-conspirator as he ferrets out a traitor in the ranks. Now it's up to Joe to make sure she stays close. Ellen may have been hurt in the past, but Joe's not going to give up on the best thing that has ever happened to him

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Throughout the black experience, African American women contributed to the cultural, economic, educational, and political development of the African American community. They did so while maintaining the image of polite, respectable women who supported both each other and their race. This anthology focuses on the world of African American women from slavery to contemporary times. It discusses how they attempted to protect their bodies and image in the face of horrifying circumstances. It also shows how their strength helped to support the development of African American and indeed American society."--
