The Relation of Conduct Problems and Depressive Symptoms to Growth in Substance Use in Adolescent Boys by Deborah M Capaldi( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the relation of conduct problems and depressed mood to tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and other drug use in 6th through 11th grades. A total of 200 at-risk 6th-grade boys completed an extensive assessment that involved interviews, home observations, questionnaires, test data, telephone interviews, court records, and school questionnaires and records. The boys' levels of depression and substance use were self-reported. Based on the assessments, subjects were categorized into four groups: (1) conduct problems only; (2) depressed mood only; (3) both depression and conduct problems; and (4) neither problem. Levels of substance abuse were plotted each year. Results showed that boys with conduct problems in sixth grade showed elevated substance use at adolescence, particularly for tobacco, marijuana, and other drugs. Boys who were only depressed did not show increased risk for substance use through adolescence. Conduct problems in 6th grade were predictive of substance use through 11th grade. Of the various forms of substance use, alcohol use was least associated with conduct problems. One table and eight figures are attached. (MM)
The Violent Adolescent Male : Specialist or Generalist? by Deborah M Capaldi( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing body of evidence that specialization in violent crimes is rare and that it is hard to identify distinguishing characteristics of violent offenders. The purpose of this study, conducted in a Pacific Northwest city, was to determine whether violent behavior is, in fact, a manifestation of high rates of antisocial behavior in general, and that the violent adolescent offender is a member of the broader category of multiple offenders. The study population included 200 boys recruited from elementary schools in neighborhoods with a high incidence of delinquency. The boys were assessed yearly between 4th and 10th grade. Assessments consisted of parent and child interviews, home observations, videotaped interaction tasks, school data, and juvenile court records. Study findings indicated that: (1) all offenders with an arrest for violence by 10th grade had been arrested at least twice for a nonstatus offense, and that the 17 repeat offenders with arrests for violence had twice as many arrests as repeat offenders with no arrests for violence; (2) by age 17, 55% of multiple offenders had 1 arrest for violence; (3) there were few differences in the family backgrounds and developmental histories of violent and nonviolent juvenile offenders once frequency of arrest was controlled for; (4) families with violent adolescents had lower per capita incomes and higher antisocial behavior among the fathers than other families; and (5) all multiple offenders, violent and nonviolent, showed elevated antisocial behavior and deficits in other areas, with the nonviolent group showing slightly more problematic behavior than the violent group.

Fourth Grade Predictors of Initiation of Sexual Intercourse by 9Th Grade, for Boys by Deborah M Capaldi( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was hypothesized that antisocial behavior and deviant peer involvement assessed prior to puberty, at grade four, would predict initiation of sexual intercourse by grade nine. The hypotheses were tested on a sample of 201 boys who were at risk for delinquency. The subjects participated in an extensive multiple method/agent assessment for both parents and the boy including interviews, home observations, questionnaires, test data, telephone interviews, school questionnaires and records, and court data. The multiple regression analysis showed that deviant peer association and antisocial behavior along with anxiety, assessed at grade four, and pubertal maturation assessed at grade 6, were significant predictors of initiation of sexual intercourse by grade nine. The results revealed that characteristics of the boy at grade four were more powerfully predictive of initiation of sexual intercourse by grade nine than were the family management constructs of supervision and discipline. The process was hypothesized to progress from poor family management to antisocial child behavior, involvement with a deviant peer group, and early sexual intercourse. (Nb)

Intimate partner violence and diurnal cortisol patterns in couples( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Effects of physical victimization on diurnal patterns of cortisol were examined. Victimization and cortisol data in a community sample of couples were analyzed. Women with higher levels of victimization showed flatter diurnal cortisol patterns. Men's victimization was not associated with their diurnal cortisol levels. Summary: This study examined whether physical intimate partner violence (IPV) victimization was associated with diurnal patterns of salivary cortisol in a community sample of 122 couples in their 30s from predominantly lower socioeconomic status backgrounds. Findings indicate that women with higher levels of victimization exhibited flatter patterns of diurnal cortisol characterized by both higher midday levels and more attenuated decreases in cortisol levels across the day, compared to women with lower levels of victimization. However, men's victimization was not associated with their diurnal cortisol levels. This study advances our understanding of the association between physical IPV victimization and dysregulated hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis functioning in women, which is likely to have further implications for their subsequent mental and physical health
