Risk and Resilience Factors Linked to Problem Behavior among Urban, Culturally Diverse Adolescents.
Stoiber, Karen Callan; Good, Barbara
School Psychology Review, v27 n3 p380-97 1998
Discusses risk factors associated with sexual intercourse, gang involvement, and alcohol and drug use among adolescents. Different patterns of risk are found to predict the three problem behaviors. Discriminant analysis substantiates that delinquency was differentially associated with low problem vs. high problem urban adolescents. Results support an ecological, multidimensional approach to understanding problem behaviors. (Author/JDM)
