Childhood Risk Factors and Alcohol Use Trajectories during Adolescence

Project Team: Rainer K. Silbereisen, Karina Weichold & Michael Spaeth

The aim of the current project is to identify trajectories of alcohol use in male and female adolescents. Moreover, they will be linked with early childhood risk fators and concurrent negative circumstances. In order to pursue that, we will analyze an archival data set (Leipzig Longituidnal Study) which includes 9 waves of data collection from childhood through adolescence.
