Research suggests that certain major mental disorders are likely to co-occur among adolescents. Specifically, a two-factor structure emerges when modeling the higher order structure of psychopathology. Mental disorders tend to be organized into two general dimensions: internalizing (depression and anxiety) and externalizing (aggression, delinquency...

Externalizing and internalizing problems have been associated with problem gambling and gambling-related harms in children and adults. However, there is a paucity of longitudinal research investigating these variables and their change over time in predicting gambling engagement among youth. Therefore, the objective of the present study is to examin...

Benzodiazepines (BZDs) are a substance commonly misused in adolescence. A significant risk factor for the nonmedical use of BZDs is sex, whereby girls are more likely to misuse such drugs. However, very few studies have examined the mental health correlates of adolescents who engage in the nonmedical use of BZDs. The current study examines whether...

Background An association between child sexual abuse (CSA) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been documented. However, the temporal relationship between these problems and the roles of trauma-related symptoms or other forms of maltreatment remain unclear. This review aims to synthesize available research on CSA and ADHD, asses...

While research addresses neighborhood disorder as leading to conduct problems, the role of individual-level differences in shaping adolescent perceptions of neighborhood has been overlooked. Data on youth, over-selected for childhood conduct problems (N = 744, 58% childhood conduct problems, 47% girls), were used to examine the link between conduct...
Article
Introduction Children with conduct problems (CP) exhibit problematic externalizing behaviors that violate the rights of others and/or societal norms, are likely to present with comorbid psychological problems, engage in high-risk behaviours during adolescence and in turn, display poorer prospective health in adulthood. However, little known about t...

COVID-19 underscores the importance of understanding variation in adherence to rules concerning health behaviors. Children with conduct problems have difficulty with rule adherence, and linking early conduct problems with later adherence to COVID-19 guidelines can provide new insight into public health. The current study employed a sample (N = 744)...

Despite the high prevalence and the negative consequences of conduct problems (CP) and depressive symptoms (DS) comorbidity, factors that could explain this comorbidity in children, such as temperament, are still poorly understood (Beauchaine & Chicchetti, 2016; McDougough-Caplan et al., 2018). Moreover, while previous findings support the relevanc...

Objective Clinicians may specify the diagnosis of conduct disorder (CD) as “with limited prosocial emotions” (LPE). This specifier is thought to identify youths with particularly severe and stable symptomatology. However, few studies have examined the clinical usefulness of the LPE specifier among children with childhood-onset CD. The current study...

Background The psychosocial predictors of pubertal timing include a variety of variables that can be grouped into four large categories: SES, family environment, race, and childhood maltreatment. However, much of the research regarding predictors of pubertal timing examines these categories of predictors separately, which is problematic as many of...

Youth with conduct problems (CP) may experience high rates of depressive symptoms (DS). However, little is known about the direction of the longitudinal associations between CP and DS in this specific population.

Résumé L’agressivité chez les filles tend à ne pas se manifester de la même façon que chez les garçons ; de plus, elle suit une trajectoire longitudinale particulière.

In the present chapter, we focus on a Canadian study of long-term trajectories and sequelae of girlhood aggression in the context of a broad range of negative psychosocial and health outcomes, including maternal and child health, difficulties in parenting, and the intergenerational transfer of risk to offspring. In general, we address the following...

La programmation de recherche de notre équipe porte sur les difficultés de comportement (DC) et l’adaptation sociale des filles et des garçons de l’enfance jusqu’à la transition à l’âge adulte. Elle met résolument l’accent sur les différences selon le sexe et, plus récemment, le genre.
Project
Ce projet est la poursuite d’une étude longitudinale prospective amorcée en 2008 auprès d’un groupe de filles et de garçons présentant des PC à l’âge scolaire primaire et d’un groupe témoin (N = 744). Le projet prend avantage des mesures prises chaque année sur les PC et sur plusieurs facteurs de risque et de protection (du temps 0 au temps 9, ou T0 à T9) et propose au T11 (deux ans plus tard), des mesures pour évaluer le processus de résilience et l’adaptation psychologique, relationnelle, scolaire et professionnelle des jeunes alors qu’ils sont devenus des adultes émergents.
Project
Ce projet s’inscrit en continuité d’une étude longitudinale prospective, amorcée en 2007, pour étudier les différences de sexe et de genre dans les corrélats, l’évolution et les conséquences des TC qui surviennent à l’enfance. Son principal objectif est de décrire et expliquer, 12 ans plus tard, le rôle des facteurs de risque individuels et environnementaux associés au développement des troubles de la personnalité au début de l’âge adulte chez des hommes et des femmes qui présentaient des TC tôt à l’enfance. Les effets modérateurs du sexe et du genre sur les liens entre les facteurs de risque et les troubles de la personnalité seront testés.
