Parent-based interventions to reduce adolescent problem behaviors: New directions for self-regulation approaches

James Jaccard, Nicole Levitz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes the design of parent-based interventions to prevent adolescent problem behaviors based on theories that are rooted in adolescent self regulation. It integrates traditional attitude theories of social behavior with theories of split second decision making that rely on models of memory, including sensory memory, short term memory, working memory, and long term memory. New strategies for program design to reduce adolescent problem behaviors that derive from poor self regulation are developed from this integrated framework.
