Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, v48 n8 p820 Aug 2009
A common diathesis model with precursive patterns of aggression and delinquent behavior from preschool onward is examined whether it anticipates early first drinking (EFD). It was found that EFD and delinquent behavior have a common diathesis that is evident before school entry. It is suggested that interventions should aim at dismantling the emergent delinquency-related developmental trajectory.
