Tracking procedures for locating high-risk youth

Few published works are available that provide a comprehensive description of tracking procedures. This article describes the data collection tracking protocol that was used in Project Towards No Drug Abuse (Project TND), to follow high-risk youth over a 5 -+ year period. Youth were followed from 1994 through 2000. A total of 35% of these youth were assessed 5 -+ years later. Collapsing across the last two waves, 46% of these youth were followed an average of 5 years later. These procedures may be helpful in tracking highly mobile youth.

Factors associated with women's risk of rape in the military environment

This study assessed military environmental factors associated with rape occurring during military service, while controlling for pre-military trauma experience. Methods: A national cross-sectional survey of 588 women veterans serving in Vietnam or in subsequent eras was obtained through structured telephone interviews.

Psychopathology and sexual aggression in nonincarcerated men

47 men who self-reported rape or attempted rape were compared to 56 sexually active men who denied perpetrating sexual aggression on psychopathology. The Ss were surveyed using the Sexual Experiences Survey (M. Koss and C. Gidycz, 1985), and completed structured clinical interviews. Sexually aggressive men reported a pattern of symptoms indicating impulse control problems; they had more conduct-disordered behavior in childhood, and abused alcohol and illicit drugs more than nonviolent men.
