   Abstract = {© 2014, Springer Science+Business Media New York. Risky
             sexual behavior poses significant health risks by increasing
             sexually transmitted infections and unintended pregnancies.
             Previous research has documented many factors related to
             risky sexual behavior. This study adds to the literature by
             proposing a prospective, developmental model of peer factors
             related to risky sexual behavior. Developmental pathways to
             risky sexual behavior were examined in a sample of 517
             individuals (51 % female; 82 % European American, 16 %
             African American, 2 % other) followed from age 5–27.
             Structural equation models examined direct and indirect
             effects of peer rejection (assessed via peer nominations at
             ages 5, 6, 7, and 8), affiliation with deviant peers
             (assessed via self-report at ages 11 and 12), and
             delinquency (assessed via maternal report at ages 10 and 16)
             on risky sexual behavior (assessed via self-report at age
             27). More peer rejection during childhood, affiliation with
             deviant peers during pre- adolescence, and delinquency in
             childhood and adolescence predicted more risky sexual
             behavior through age 27, although delinquency at age 16 was
             the only risk factor that had a significant direct effect on
             risky sexual behavior through age 27 above and beyond the
             other risk factors. Peer rejection was related to subsequent
             risk factors for girls but not boys. Peer risk factors as
             early as age 5 shape developmental pathways through
             childhood and adolescence and have implications for risky
             sexual behavior into adulthood.},

   Abstract = {This study examined gender differences in trajectories of
             delinquent behaviors over a 6-year period in adolescence and
             differential outcomes of these diverse developmental
             pathways. Participants were 754 children who were part of a
             longitudinal study of the development of early starting
             conduct problems. Four trajectory patterns were identified
             across grades 7-12: increasing, desisting, chronic, and
             nonproblem groups. Although the proportion of boys and girls
             varied across the pathways, both genders were represented on
             these trajectories. Boys were more represented on the
             chronic and desisting trajectories; girls were more
             represented in the nonproblem group. However, the proportion
             of boys and girls was similar in the increasing trajectory.
             Trajectory membership significantly predicted age 19
             outcomes for partner violence, risky sexual behavior and
             depression, and the risk conferred on these negative
             adjustment outcomes did not vary by gender. The overall
             pattern was characterized by poor outcomes at age 19 for
             youth in both the chronic and the increasing trajectories.
             The major conclusion is that, other than base rate
             differences, developmental patterns and outcomes for girls
             mimic those previously found for boys.},

   Abstract = {A functional polymorphism in the promoter region of the
             monoamine oxidizing gene monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) has been
             associated with behavioral sensitivity to adverse
             environmental conditions in multiple studies (e.g., Caspi et
             al. 2002; Kim-Cohen et al., 2006). The present study
             investigates the effects of genotype and early physical
             discipline on externalizing behavior. We expand on the
             current literature in our assessment of externalizing,
             incorporating information across multiple reporters and over
             a broad developmental time period, and in our understanding
             of environmental risk.This study uses data from the Child
             Development Project, an ongoing longitudinal study following
             a community sample of children beginning at age 5. Physical
             discipline before age 6 was quantified using a subset of
             questions from the Conflict Tactics Scale (Straus, 1979).
             Externalizing behavior was assessed in the male,
             European-American sub-sample (N = 250) by parent, teacher,
             and self-report using Achenbach's Child Behavior Checklist,
             Teacher Report Form, and Youth Self-Report (Achenbach,
             1991), at 17 time points from ages 6 to 22. Regression
             analyses tested the influence of genotype, physical
             discipline, and their interaction on externalizing behavior,
             and its subscales, delinquency and aggression.We found a
             significant interaction effect between genotype and physical
             discipline on levels of delinquent behavior. Similar trends
             were observed for aggression and overall externalizing
             behavior, although these did not reach statistical
             significance. Main effects of physical discipline held for
             all outcome variables, and no main effects held for
             genotype.The adverse consequences of physical discipline on
             forms of externalizing behavior are exacerbated by an
             underlying biological risk conferred by MAOA

   Abstract = {Adolescent chronic antisocial behavior is costly but
             concentrated in a relatively small number of individuals.
             The search for effective preventive interventions draws from
             empirical findings of three kinds of gene-by-environment
             interactions: (1) parenting behaviors mute the impact of
             genes; (2) genes alter the impact of traumatic environmental
             experiences such as physical abuse and peer social
             rejection; and (3) individuals and environments influence
             each other in a dynamic developmental cascade. Thus,
             environmental interventions that focus on high-risk youth
             may prove effective. The Fast Track intervention and
             randomized controlled trial are described. The intervention
             is a 10-year series of efforts to produce proximal change in
             parenting, peer relations, social cognition, and academic
             performance in order to lead to distal prevention of
             adolescent conduct disorder. Findings indicate that conduct
             disorder cases can be prevented, but only in the highest
             risk group of children. Implications for policy are

   Abstract = {Using prospective longitudinal data, we tested 5 hypotheses:
             (a) that the relation between earlier developmental
             experiences (peer social rejection and victimization in a
             romantic relationship) and adult violent behavior toward
             peers and romantic partners is specific to relationship
             domain; (b) that the relation between social-information
             processing (SIP) biases and subsequent violence is also
             specific to relational domain (romantic partner vs. peer);
             (c) that the relation between developmental experiences and
             SIP biases is domain specific; (d) that domain-specific SIP
             mediates the impact of earlier developmental experiences on
             later violent behavior; and (e) that harsh parenting early
             in life is a domain-general predictor of SIP and later
             violent behavior. Harsh parenting was assessed through
             interviews with parents when their children were age 5
             years. Classroom sociometric assessments indexing peer
             rejection were completed in elementary school, and
             self-report of victimization by romantic partners was
             provided at age 18 years. SIP was assessed via interview at
             age 22 years, and violent behavior was measured via self-
             and partner report at ages 23 years and 24 years. Structural
             equation analyses revealed specificity in the relation
             between developmental experiences and violence and in the
             prediction to and from SIP in the peer domain, but not in
             the romantic-relationship domain. The impact of early harsh
             treatment on violence toward peers was mediated by SIP
             biases in the peer domain. These findings provide support
             for domain specificity in the peer domain but for
             cross-domain generality in the romantic relationship domain
             in the development of violent behavior in early adulthood.

   Abstract = {In this prospective longitudinal study of 574 children
             followed from age 5 to age 21, the authors examine the links
             between early physical abuse and violent delinquency and
             other socially relevant outcomes during late adolescence or
             early adulthood and the extent to which the child's race and
             gender moderate these links. Analyses of covariance
             indicated that individuals who had been physically abused in
             the first 5 years of life were at greater risk for being
             arrested as juveniles for violent, nonviolent, and status
             offenses. Moreover, physically abused youth were less likely
             to have graduated from high school and more likely to have
             been fired in the past year, to have been a teen parent, and
             to have been pregnant or impregnated someone in the past
             year while not married. These effects were more pronounced
             for African American than for European American youth and
