   Abstract = {Although most theories of deviant behavioral development
             explicitly acknowledge the roles of both parenting and peer
             relations, few theories, and even fewer empirical analyses,
             have articulated the manner in which these factors relate to
             each other and operate dynamically across childhood. The
             chapter by Collins and Roisman (Chapter 4 in this book)
             provides an excellent general overview of how these factors
             operate in adolescence. This chapter identifies aspects of
             parenting and peer relations across the life span that may
             play a role in the onset of illicit drug use in adolescence
             and the manner in which these factors may influence each
             other and operate in concert across development. The
             enormous social, psychological, and economic costs of
             substance use among adolescents in the United States over
             the past four decades (Kendall & Kessler, 2002; Kessler et
             al., 2001) have led to unprecedented attempts at
             interdiction, prosecution, and treatment, mostly without
             much success. Epidemiologic studies have directed attention
             toward prevention. This research has taken largely a
             risk-factor approach following from the methods of Rutter
             (Rutter & Garmezy, 1983), in which individual-difference
             variables in childhood are statistically linked to later
             substance use. Empirical research has identified several
             dozen factors in childhood that enhance risk for substance
             use during adolescence (reviewed by Hawkins, Catalano, &
             Miller, 1992; Weinberg, Rahdert, Colliver, & Glantz, 1998),
             but a laundry list of risk factors has not yet led to
             efficacious prevention programs.},

   Abstract = {Although the onset of illicit substance use during
             adolescence can hit parents abruptly like a raging flood,
             its origins likely start as a trickle in early childhood.
             Understanding antecedent factors and how they grow into a
             stream that leads to adolescent drug use is important for
             theories of social development as well as policy
             formulations to prevent onset. Based on a review of the
             extant literature, we posited a dynamic cascade model of the
             development of adolescent substance-use onset, specifying
             that (1) temporally distinct domains of biological factors,
             social ecology, early parenting, early conduct problems,
             early peer relations, adolescent parenting, and adolescent
             peer relations would predict early substance-use onset; (2)
             each domain would predict the temporally next domain; (3)
             each domain would mediate the impact of the immediately
             preceding domain on substance use; and (4) each domain would
             increment the previous domain in predicting substance use.
             The model was tested with a longitudinal sample of 585 boys
             and girls from the Child Development Project, who were
             followed from prekindergarten through Grade 12. Multiple
             variables in each of the seven predictor domains were
             assessed annually through direct observations, testing, peer
             nominations, school records, and parent-, teacher-, and
             self-report. Partial least-squares analyses tested
             hypotheses. Of the sample, 5.2% had engaged in substance use
             by Grade 7, and 51.3% of the sample had engaged in substance
             use by Grade 12. Five major empirical findings emerged: (1)
             Most variables significantly predicted early substance-use
             onset; (2) predictor variables were significantly related to
             each other in a web of correlations; (3) variables in each
             domain were significantly predicted by variables in the
             temporally prior domain; (4) each domain's variables
             significantly mediated the impact of the variables in the
             temporally prior domain on substance-use outcomes; and (5)
             variables in each domain significantly incremented variables
             in the previous domain in predicting substance-use onset. A
             dynamic cascade represented the most parsimonious model of
             how substance use develops. The findings are consistent with
             six features of social development theories: (1) multiple
             modest effects; (2) primacy of early influences; (3)
             continuity in adaptation; (4) reciprocal transactional
             development; (5) nonlinear growth in problem behaviors
             during sensitive periods; and (6) opportunities for change
             with each new domain. The findings suggest points for
             interventions, public policies, and economics of
             substance-use and future inquiry.},

   Abstract = {This study investigated the predictive validity of youth
             callous-unemotional (CU) traits, as measured in early
             adolescence (Grade 7) by the Antisocial Process Screening
             Device (APSD; Frick & Hare, 2001), in a longitudinal sample
             (N = 754). Antisocial outcomes, assessed in adolescence and
             early adulthood, included self-reported general delinquency
             from 7th grade through 2 years post-high school,
             self-reported serious crimes through 2 years post-high
             school, juvenile and adult arrest records through 1 year
             post-high school, and antisocial personality disorder
             symptoms and diagnosis at 2 years post-high school. CU
             traits measured in 7th grade were highly predictive of 5 of
             the 6 antisocial outcomes-general delinquency, juvenile and
             adult arrests, and early adult antisocial personality
             disorder criterion count and diagnosis-over and above prior
             and concurrent conduct problem behavior (i.e., criterion
             counts of oppositional defiant disorder and conduct
             disorder) and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
             (criterion count). Incorporating a CU traits specifier for
             those with a diagnosis of conduct disorder improved the
             positive prediction of antisocial outcomes, with a very low
             false-positive rate. There was minimal evidence of
             moderation by sex, race, or urban/rural status. Urban/rural
             status moderated one finding, with being from an urban area
             associated with stronger relations between CU traits and
             adult arrests. Findings clearly support the inclusion of CU
             traits as a specifier for the diagnosis of conduct disorder,
             at least with respect to predictive validity.},

             examine parents' reports of child physical abuse in the
             first 5 years of life as a predictor of substance use at
             ages 12, 16, and 24. Path analyses revealed that physical
             abuse in the first 5 years of life predicted subsequent
             substance use for females but not males. We found a direct
             effect of early physical abuse on girls'substance use at age
             12 and indirect effects on substance use at age 16 and age
             24 through substance use at age 12. For boys, age 12
             substance use predicted age 16 substance use, and age 16
             substance use predicted age 24 substance use, but physical
             abuse in the first 5 years of life was unrelated to
             subsequent substance use. These findings suggest that for
             females, a mechanism of influence of early physical abuse on
             substance use into early adulthood appears to be through
             precocious initiation of substance use in early

   Abstract = {Conduct problems, substance use, and risky sexual behavior
             have been shown to coexist among adolescents, which may lead
             to significant health problems. The current study was
             designed to examine relations among these problem behaviors
             in a community sample of children at high risk for conduct
             disorder. A latent growth model of childhood conduct
             problems showed a decreasing trend from grades K to 5.
             During adolescence, four concurrent conduct problem and
             substance use trajectory classes were identified (high
             conduct problems and high substance use, increasing conduct
             problems and increasing substance use, minimal conduct
             problems and increasing substance use, and minimal conduct
             problems and minimal substance use) using a parallel process
             growth mixture model. Across all substances (tobacco, binge
             drinking, and marijuana use), higher levels of childhood
             conduct problems during kindergarten predicted a greater
             probability of classification into more problematic
             adolescent trajectory classes relative to less problematic
             classes. For tobacco and binge drinking models, increases in
             childhood conduct problems over time also predicted a
             greater probability of classification into more problematic
             classes. For all models, individuals classified into more
             problematic classes showed higher proportions of early
             sexual intercourse, infrequent condom use, receiving money
             for sexual services, and ever contracting an STD.
             Specifically, tobacco use and binge drinking during early
             adolescence predicted higher levels of sexual risk taking
             into late adolescence. Results highlight the importance of

   Abstract = {In the interest of improving child maltreatment prevention
             science, this longitudinal, community based study of 499
             mothers and their infants tested the hypothesis that
             mothers' childhood history of maltreatment would predict
             maternal substance use problems, which in turn would predict
             offspring victimization. Mothers (35% White/non-Latina, 34%
             Black/non-Latina, 23% Latina, 7% other) were recruited and
             interviewed during pregnancy, and child protective services
             records were reviewed for the presence of the participants'
             target infants between birth and age 26 months. Mediating
             pathways were examined through structural equation modeling
             and tested using the products of the coefficients approach.
             The mediated pathway from maternal history of sexual abuse
             to substance use problems to offspring victimization was
             significant (standardized mediated path [ab] = .07, 95%
             CI [.02, .14]; effect size = .26), as was the mediated
             pathway from maternal history of physical abuse to substance
             use problems to offspring victimization (standardized
             mediated path [ab] = .05, 95% CI [.01, .11]; effect
             size = .19). There was no significant mediated pathway
             from maternal history of neglect. Findings are discussed in
             terms of specific implications for child maltreatment
             prevention, including the importance of assessment and early
             intervention for maternal history of maltreatment and
             substance use problems, targeting women with maltreatment
             histories for substance use services, and integrating child
