Jessor, Richard; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v31 n6 p923-33 Nov 1995
Examined the relationships between psychosocial protective factors (such as religious beliefs or parental sanctions) and adolescents' problem behaviors. Found a significant inverse relation between protection and problem-behavior involvement. Found significant interaction between protection and risk in the prediction of problem behavior; protection was shown to moderate the relation of risk to problem behavior. (HTH)
