Atkinson, John S.; Richard, Alan J.; Carlson, Jerry W.
Journal of Child and Adolescent Substance Abuse, v11 n1 p45-54 2001
Tests the Primary Socialization Hypothesis of deviant behavior in examining drug use in a sample of adolescents participating in a federally sponsored program for disadvantaged youth. The theory holds that peer, family, and schools are the principal agents in instilling pro-social norms in adolescents. As predicted by the theory, family and school problems were significantly associated with negative peer influence. (Contains 19 references and 2 tables.) (GCP)
