This study examined the developmental associations between substance use and violence. We examined the trends in each behavior throughout adolescence, how the behaviors covaried over time, and the symmetry of associations taking into account frequency and severity of each behavior. We also examined whether changes in one behavior affected changes in the other behavior over time. Six years of annual data were analyzed for 506 boys who were in the seventh grade at the first assessment. Concurrent… Expand

A Longitudinal Study of the Reciprocal Effects of Alcohol Use and Interpersonal Violence Among Australian Young People
Findings suggest that risk processes begin in late childhood or very early adolescence; efforts to reduce one problem behavior are likely to reduce the other. Expand
Greater than the Sum of its Parts: The Combined Effect of Early Alcohol Use and Violence on Alcohol Abuse and Violence in Adulthood
Investigating how violence and alcohol use coexist in adolescence and how this coexistence predicts alcohol abuse and violence in adulthood indicates that coexistent alcohol use and violence pose a risk for alcohol abuse in adulthood, beyond the independent effects of alcohol and violence. Expand
Relationship between alcohol use and violent behavior among urban African American youths from adolescence to emerging adulthood: a longitudinal study.
The results support a bidirectional relationship between alcohol use and violent behavior among urban African American youths and programs and policies aimed at reducing violence or alcohol use among adolescents should take into account. Expand
Longitudinal associations between problem alcohol use and violent victimization in a national sample of adolescents.
Findings across the two statistical approaches suggest that interventions that reduce the likelihood of problem alcohol use among adolescents can minimize the short-term risk of victimization and the long- term risk of problemcohol use in young adulthood. Expand
Moderators of the Dynamic Link Between Alcohol Use and Aggressive Behavior among Adolescent Males
Findings indicated that within- individual increases in alcohol use quantity from one’s own typical levels of drinking were concurrently associated with within-individual increases in aggressive behavior, and vice versa, but increases inalcohol were more strongly linked to increases in aggression among boys with attitudes favoring violence and those who lived in high-crime neighborhoods.

Longitudinal Associations Between Substance Use and Violence in Adolescence Through Adulthood
Cross-lagged structural equation models showed that longitudinal patterns of violence and substance use vary somewhat and that the ways preceding stages of violenceand substance use are associated with subsequent violence, and substanceuse differ by violence, substance type, and transitional stage.

Reciprocal Effects of Alcohol Use and Violence Perpetration Among Early Adolescents in Mexico: A Gendered Analysis
Cross-lagged multi-group path models showed that, for both males and females, more frequent alcohol use predicted subsequent increases in criminally violent behavior, and bullying/aggression predicted later increases in alcohol use. Expand
Violence involvement, substance use, and sexual activity among Mexican-American and European-American adolescents.
Associations between violence involvement and other forms of health risk behavior are bidirectional and adolescents involved with violence are at risk for increases in substance use and sexual behavior over time. Expand
