   Abstract = {This study used data from 6 sites and 3 countries to examine
             the developmental course of physical aggression in childhood
             and to analyze its linkage to violent and nonviolent
             offending outcomes in adolescence. The results indicate that
             among boys there is continuity in problem behavior from
             childhood to adolescence and that such continuity is
             especially acute when early problem behavior takes the form
             of physical aggression. Chronic physical aggression during
             the elementary school years specifically increases the risk
             for continued physical violence as well as other nonviolent
             forms of delinquency during adolescence. However, this
             conclusion is reserved primarily for boys, because the
             results indicate no clear linkage between childhood physical
             aggression and adolescent offending among female samples
             despite notable similarities across male and female samples
             in the developmental course of physical aggression in

             behavior were tested for correlated rates of developmental
             change and reciprocal associations. For 4 years beginning at
             age 14, adolescents (N = 396) reported on their delinquent
             behavior and on their parents' knowledge of their
             whereabouts and activities. Parents completed measures of
             their adolescents' delinquent behavior. Knowledge was
             negatively correlated with delinquent behaviors at baseline,
             and increases over time in knowledge were negatively
             correlated with increases in parent-reported delinquent
             behavior. Reciprocal associations indicate that low levels
             of parental knowledge predict increases in delinquent
             behavior and that high levels of delinquent behavior predict
             decreases in knowledge. Discussion considers both
             youth-driven and parent-driven processes that may account

             arrested as juveniles for violent, nonviolent, and status

             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

             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,

   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

   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

   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 = {<h4>Background</h4>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.<h4>Method</h4>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.<h4>Results</h4>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.<h4>Conclusion</h4>The
             adverse consequences of physical discipline on forms of
             externalizing behavior are exacerbated by an underlying
             biological risk conferred by MAOA genotype.},

   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 = {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.},
