3. Résumé


« Ln recent years, a number of studies pertaining to the development of antisocial behaviour have been conducted in the province of Québec. The following pages describe results from the Montreal Longitudinal-Experimental Study (MLES), related to the development of delinquency and substance use in boys. Studies reported here have in common a developmental perspective and a quantitative methodology in examining the phenomenon of delinquency and substance use from early childhood to late adolescence. More specifically, such development is investigated by identifying trajectories of individual behaviour over time leading to these adjustment problems. Thus the present chapter first examines separately individual factors defining trajectories of behaviours leading to delinquency and substance use in boys, and secondly, environmental factors related to such trajectories. Finally, current research from the MLES is described and possible directions for future research are discussed. » (pp. 85-86)
