Multiple victimization experiences,resources, and co-occurring mental health problems among substance-using adolescents

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study examined the relationship between multiple types of victimization experiences,psychological and social resources, and co-occurring mental health problems among substance-using adolescents. Data for this cross-sectional study were obtained from a multisite research project in which adolescents ages 11-18 years participated in a comprehensive screen ng program for substance misuse. Multiple types of victimization,low self-efficacy beliefs, lack of support for victimization issues, and available sources of emotional support were positively related to co-occurring mental health problems. These findings suggest that treatment planning and interventions may focus on helping adolescents cope effectively with their victimization experiences and addressing their mental health needs. Particular emphasis may be placed on enhancing self-efficacy and social skills so that adolescents may benefit from their available sources of social support.
