The high burden and serious and long-term consequences of child maltreatment warrant increased investment in preventive and therapeutic strategies from early childhood. Expand
Developmental trajectories of childhood disruptive behaviors and adolescent delinquency: a six-site, cross-national study.
TLDR
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. Expand
Exposure to childhood sexual and physical abuse and adjustment in early adulthood.
TLDR
Much of the association between CPA and later mental health reflects the general family context in which CPA occurs, whereas this is less the case for CSA. Expand
Risk factors and life processes associated with the onset of suicidal behaviour during adolescence and early adulthood
TLDR
Findings support a life course model of the aetiology of suicidal behaviour in which risk of developing suicidal behaviour depends on accumulative exposure to a series of social, family, personality and mental health factors. Expand

TLDR
There was stronger and more consistent evidence of effects of father absence on early sexual activity and teenage pregnancy than on other behavioral or mental health problems or academic achievement. Expand

TLDR

TLDR
Those most likely to be exposed to CSA were girls reared in families in families characterized by high levels of marital conflict and impaired parenting and in families having parents with adjustment problems. Expand
Sex differences in developmental reading disability: new findings from 4 epidemiological studies.
TLDR
Reading disabilities are clearly more frequent in boys than in girls, and 4 independent epidemiological studies about the nature, extent, and significance of sex differences in reading disability show this. Expand
Mental health, educational, and social role outcomes of adolescents with depression.
