A Dynamical Systems Analysis of Adolescent Substance Abuse.
Boker, Steven M.; Graham, John
Multivariate Behavioral Research, v33 n4 p479-507 1998
Several competing dynamic models were applied to adolescent substance abuse using a cohort of 3,580 participants in a longitudinal study beginning in grade five. Evidence was found for an intrinsic self-regulating mechanism in adolescent smoking and drinking. Support for a dampened linear oscillator model is discussed. (SLD)
