Bothild Bendiksen/ Heidi Aase/ Elisabeth Svensson/ Svein Friis/ Anne Margrethe Myhre/ Ted Reichborn-Kjennerud/ Pål Zeiner

We have limited knowledge of the impact of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms on the daily functioning of young preschool children. This study investigated the level of impairment related to symptoms of ADHD in different functional domains. It also addressed how impairment caused by ADHD was related to ADHD subtype, symptom load, gender, and the co-occurrence of oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder, or both. Participating children (N = 807) who were 3.5 years old(..)

Risk factors for suicide attempts in the total population of Faroese eighth graders

Tóra Petersen/ Ask Elklit

Suicide is still one of the leading causes of youth mortality, and amongst others previous suicide attempts have been found to be one of the strongest risk factors for suicide. The objective of this study is to examine risk factors of suicide attempts in a total population of Faroese adolescents. It is expected that anxious attachment, high scores on negative affectivity and low scores on past and present social support were correlated to an increased risk of life-time suicide attempts in both f(..)

Barbara H. Esbjørn/ Ida D. Caspersen/ Mikael J. Sømhovd/ Sonja Breinholst/ Marie Louise Reinholdt-Dunne

This study explores the relationship between maternal and paternal perceptions of parenting and childhood anxiety. The perceived rearing behaviors and parental sense of competence (i.e., satisfaction and efficacy) of the parents of anxious children (n = 59) were compared with those of a non-clinical control sample (n (..)

Preadolescents with Immigrant Backgrounds: The Relationship between Emotional Problems, Parental Achievement Values, and Comparison

Daniele E. Alves/ Kristin Gustavson/ Espen Roysamb/ Brit Oppedal/ Henrik D. Zachrisson

Although strong parental achievement values have been associated with positive outcomes among children (e.g., academic success), they have also been connected to emotional problems. The latter effect may be the result of pressure related to such things as parental comparison of filial achievement, which appears to be more predominant among immigrant parents as compared with non-immigrant parents. Our goals were to assess the following: 1) whether higher levels of parental achievement values and (..)

Determinants of Binge Drinking among Adolescents in Denmark

Maria Pedersen/ Per Kragh Andersen/ Svend Sabroe

Binge drinking is a relatively common behavior among adolescents in Denmark. The aim of this study is to assess whether peer alcohol drinking, mothers’ and fathers’ attitudes toward alcohol drinking, and the adolescents’ own financial situations (e.g., the presence of pocket money) predict binge drinking among adolescents in Denmark. This study is based on the Danish data from the European School Survey Project on Alcohol and Other Drugs, which took place in 2011. This cross-sectional survey obt(..)
