Ronald B. Cox; Hua Lin; Robert E. Larzelere; Juan Bao – Prevention Science, 2024
Reports of deportation can create a state of chronic fear in children living in mixed-status immigrant families over their own or a loved one's potential deportation. One indicator of health disparities among youth is elevated rates of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use (ATOD). Yet little is known about the effects of fear of deportation (FOD)…

Lifestyle risk behaviours--physical inactivity, poor diet, poor sleep, recreational screen time, and alcohol and tobacco use--collectively known as the "Big 6" emerge during adolescence and significantly contribute to chronic disease development into adulthood. To address this issue, the Health4Life program targeted the Big 6 risk…

Alina I. Palimaru; Ryan A. Brown; Daniel L. Dickerson; David Kennedy; Carrie L. Johnson; Elizabeth J. D'Amico – Prevention Science, 2024
American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities are disproportionately affected by the opioid epidemic. AI/AN emerging adults (ages 18-25) in urban areas are at particularly high risk, with the overdose death rate among urban-dwelling AI/AN people 1.4 times higher than rural-dwelling AI/AN people. Despite these challenges, there are no…

Esther C. A. Mertens; Aniek M. Siezenga; Job van der Schalk; Jean-Louis van Gelder – Prevention Science, 2024
We developed and tested a smartphone-based intervention, FutureU, that aims to stimulate future-oriented thinking and behavior by strengthening the degree to which people identify with their future self. In order to examine the potential of this intervention prototype and opportunities for further optimization, we evaluated 1) the immediate and…

Researchers are increasingly using web-based technologies to deliver family-based, prevention programming. Few studies have examined the success of such approaches for families with low incomes. The purpose of this study was to describe the level of in-class and online engagement in a childhood obesity prevention program for parents with low…

A primary community prevention approach in Iceland was associated with strong reductions of substance use in adolescents. Two years into the implementation of this prevention model in Chile, the aim of this study was to assess changes in the prevalence of adolescent alcohol and cannabis use and to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the…

Mary Harbert C. Morgan; Sarah Huber-Krum; Leigh A. Willis; Joann Wu Shortt – Prevention Science, 2024
Parents of adolescents are faced with a variety of challenges related to their children's behavior and development. Behavioral parent training (BPT) programs may be effective strategies to mitigate adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and other common behavioral problems in the adolescent period. Adolescence is the period following the onset of…

Sharon F. Lambert; Farzana T. Saleem; Chang Liu; Theda Rose – Prevention Science, 2024
Ethnic-racial socialization is one strategy Black parents use to support their children's school engagement and academic achievement given the occurrence and toxic effects of discrimination. Egalitarianism and preparation for bias socialization messages have yielded mixed evidence of promotive and protective effects for Black youth's school…

Combs, Katie Massey; Drewelow, Karen M.; Lain, Marion Amanda; Håbesland, Marian; Ippolito, Amy; Finigan-Carr, Nadine – Prevention Science, 2023
The development of evidence-based interventions (EBIs) for the prevention of behavioral health problems is well supported. However, limited data exist on the sustainability of EBIs once initial support has ceased. The current study assessed, at 2 years after initial start-up support: (1) What percent of schools sustained EBI implementation? (2) To…

Schools are the most common site to implement evidence-based prevention programs and practices (EBPs) to improve behavioral and mental health outcomes among children and adolescents. Research has highlighted the critical role of school administrators in the adoption, implementation, and evaluation of such EBPs, focusing on the factors they should…

Zhang, Yanchen; Cook, Clayton R.; Azad, Gazi F.; Larson, Madeline; Merle, James L.; Thayer, Jordan; Pauls, Alex; Lyon, Aaron R. – Prevention Science, 2023
As the most common setting where youth access behavioral healthcare, the education sector frequently employs training and follow-up consultation as cornerstone implementation strategies to promote the implementation of evidence-based practices (EBPs). However, these strategies alone are not sufficient to promote desirable implementation (e.g.,…

Bonifay, Wes; Depaoli, Sarah – Prevention Science, 2023
Statistical analysis of categorical data often relies on multiway contingency tables; yet, as the number of categories and/or variables increases, the number of table cells with few (or zero) observations also increases. Unfortunately, sparse contingency tables invalidate the use of standard goodness-of-fit statistics. Limited-information fit…

McNeish, Daniel; Peña, Armando; Vander Wyst, Kiley B.; Ayers, Stephanie L.; Olson, Micha L.; Shaibi, Gabriel Q. – Prevention Science, 2023
Growth mixture models (GMMs) are applied to intervention studies with repeated measures to explore heterogeneity in the intervention effect. However, traditional GMMs are known to be difficult to estimate, especially at sample sizes common in single-center interventions. Common strategies to coerce GMMs to converge involve post hoc adjustments to…
