Etiologic Studies of Adolescent Drug Use: A Compendium of Data Resources and Their Implications for Prevention

Etiologic Studies of Adolescent Drug Use: A Compendium of Data Resources and Their Implications... Etiological studies canvassing five major domains of risk are reviewed. The five domains reflect unique facets of risk that are central to many current prevention approaches and include: peer social influences, family (parenting) processes, expectancies (cognitive motivations), social skills and personal self-management strategies, and personality factors. Each domain is discussed with regard to major theoretical issues, important studies that help to clarify risk mechanisms, and major findings. A sixth area covering studies of multi-ethnic youth and ethnic-specific risk mechanisms also is reviewed in the context of augmenting previous empirical findings. A final section addresses two important concerns: (1) the need for a comprehensive model of developmental vulnerability; and (2) utilization of information stemming from a long tradition of developmental etiology to enhance the efficacy of drug abuse prevention. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Primary Prevention Springer Journals

Abstract

Etiological studies canvassing five major domains of risk are reviewed. The five domains reflect unique facets of risk that are central to many current prevention approaches and include: peer social influences, family (parenting) processes, expectancies (cognitive motivations), social skills and personal self-management strategies, and personality factors. Each domain is discussed with regard to major theoretical issues, important studies that help to clarify risk mechanisms, and major findings. A sixth area covering studies of multi-ethnic youth and ethnic-specific risk mechanisms also is reviewed in the context of augmenting previous empirical findings. A final section addresses two important concerns: (1) the need for a comprehensive model of developmental vulnerability; and (2) utilization of information stemming from a long tradition of developmental etiology to enhance the efficacy of drug abuse prevention.
