   Abstract = {The purpose of this study was to evaluate the psychometric
             properties of an audio computer-assisted self-interviewing
             Web-based software application called the Social Information
             Processing Application (SIP-AP) that was designed to assess
             social information processing skills in boys in 3rd through
             5th grades. This study included a racially and ethnically
             diverse sample of 244 boys ages 8 through 12 (M = 9.4) from
             public elementary schools in 3 states. The SIP-AP includes 8
             videotaped vignettes, filmed from the first-person
             perspective, that depict common misunderstandings among
             boys. Each vignette shows a negative outcome for the victim
             and ambiguous intent on the part of the perpetrator. Boys
             responded to 16 Web-based questions representing the 5
             social information processing mechanisms, after viewing each
             vignette. Parents and teachers completed measures assessing
             boys' antisocial behavior. Confirmatory factor analyses
             revealed that a model positing the original 5 cognitive
             mechanisms fit the data well when the items representing
             prosocial cognitions were included on their own factor,
             creating a 6th factor. The internal consistencies for each
             of the 16 individual cognitions as well as for the 6
             cognitive mechanism scales were excellent. Boys with
             elevated scores on 5 of the 6 cognitive mechanisms exhibited
             more antisocial behavior than boys whose scores were not
             elevated. These findings highlight the need for further
             research on the measurement of prosocial cognitions or
             cognitive strengths in boys in addition to assessing
             cognitive deficits. Findings suggest that the SIP-AP is a
             reliable and valid tool for use in future research of social
             information processing skills in boys.},

   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

   Abstract = {This paper examines the effects of the Fast Track preventive
             intervention on youth arrests and self-reported delinquent
             behavior through age 19. High-risk youth randomly assigned
             to receive a long-term, comprehensive preventive
             intervention from 1st grade through 10th grade at four sites
             were compared to high-risk control youth. Findings indicated
             that random assignment to Fast Track reduced court-recorded
             juvenile arrest activity based on a severity weighted sum of
             juvenile arrests. Supplementary analyses revealed an
             intervention effect on the reduction in the number of
             court-recorded moderate-severity juvenile arrests, relative
             to control children. In addition, among youth with higher
             initial behavioral risk, the intervention reduced the number
             of high-severity adult arrests relative to the control
             youth. Survival analyses examining the onset of arrests and
             delinquent behavior revealed a similar pattern of findings.
             Intervention decreased the probability of any juvenile
             arrest among intervention youth not previously arrested. In
             addition, intervention decreased the probability of a
             self-reported high-severity offense among youth with no
             previous self-reported high-severity offense. Intervention
             effects were also evident on the onset of high-severity
             court-recorded adult arrests among participants, but these
             effects varied by site. The current findings suggest that
             comprehensive preventive intervention can prevent juvenile
             arrest rates, although the presence and nature of
             intervention effects differs by outcome.},

   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
