    Article - En anglais


    High rates of adolescent homicide, pregnancy, substance abuse, and sexually transmitted diseases underscore the importance of interventions designed to reduce problem behaviors.

    However, the definition of « problem » behavior and the association with other activities may change between youth cultures.

    Therefore, greater attention to defining the « problem » behaviors to be targeted will permit more effective utilization of primary vs secondary intervention strategies and identification of high-risk individuals.


    Two studies of African-American adolescents regarding sexual intercourse, school truancy, substance abuse, and drug trafficking are presented.
