Dishion, Thomas J.; Capaldi, Deborah M.; Yoerger, Karen
Journal of Adolescent Research, v14 n2 p175-205 Apr 1999
This study examined antecedents to early patterned alcohol and tobacco use and marijuana experimentation between ages 11 and 16 for an at-risk male sample. Findings suggested that family, peer, and child characteristics were inextricably connected within an ecology of development. A structural equation prediction model suggested a higher order construct, "childhood risk structure." (Author/KB)
