A continuation of the LONGitudinal Studies of Child Abuse and Neglect (LONGSCAN), this project will address the long-term impacts of childhood maltreatment on young adult behavior, answering key questions about psychosocial and behavioral outcomes of maltreatment during the transition in adulthood. The specific aims are as follows:
Understand long-term patterns, correlates, and consequences of neglectful parenting
Understand the impact of maltreatment and drug use patterns on risky sexual behavior and interpersonal aggression
Model drug use trajectories among the high-risk sample
Examine patterns of early adult resilience across multiple domains
