Example text

Direct behavioral continuities were apparent, but peer-mediated effects accounted for up to half of the associations observed. Caspi, Elder, and Herbener (1990), tracing adult outcomes of men with early histories of temper tantrums, reported a similar pattern. Impulsive personality styles persisted to adulthood; in addition, however, progressive deteriorations in occupational status derived in part from indirect effects of truncated educational careers. In a parallel way, Kerner et a1. (1995) argued for dynamic processes in the development of criminal careers, whereby the cumulating effects of behaviors, attributions, sanctions, and stigma across the life course progressively limit options for escape into nondeviant pathways and increase risks of persistence in crime.

Initial tests on childhood and adolescent data seem promising (Jeglum Bartush, Lynam, Moffitt, & Silva, 1997), identifying a childhoodonset factor showing the hypothesized links with childhood hyperactivity, poor verbal skills, impulsive personality traits and increased risks of violent offending, and a separate adolescent-onset factor, more strongly associated with peer delinquency. Several questions do, however, arise. , 1996). This suggests that early-onset cases include a separate "childhood-limited" group, not facing a severe long-term prognosis.

1. Hyperactivity Hyperactivity, impulsivity, and attentional difficulties have consistently been identified as among the more important markers of poor longterm outcome for conduct problems, at least in males. When the two disorders co-occur in childhood, conduct problems appear to arise as a complication of hyperactivity. Hyperactive symptoms emerge first in comorbid groups (Barkley, Fischer, Edelbrock, & Smallish, 1990), and early hyperactivity predicts the development of conduct problems, but the reverse does not apply (Taylor, Heptinstall, Chadwick, & Danckaerts, 1996).
