All include opportunities for and expectations of scholarly collaboration with the Investigators and a larger group of collaborating rofessionals. Initial appointments will be for up to three years. The projects are co-directed by Patrick Tolan, Deborah Gorman-Smith, and David Henry. The first is a longitudinal study of adolescent males living in inner-city Chicago and their families. The recent continuation funding permits evaluation of the relation of developmental pathways to relationship violence and adequate transition into adult roles as well as expansion of the study to include understanding of dynamics of females' adolescent development. The second study is a preventive intervention trial focusing on children and families living in urban, poor neighborhoods and emphasizes enhancing the transition to first grade for children and families, and supporting academic and social competence during first grade to lessen risk for social risk factors related to later drug use (and other problems). We take an ecological approach that emphasizes multi-level, multivariate, transactional models to understanding risk and prevention. The populations are multi-ethnic and live in inner-city and other urban poor neighborhoods. UIC and Chicago offer diverse and extensive opportunities for involvement with many prevention researchers and community oriented professionals. UIC also houses one of the NIMH prevention post-docs, a prevention center in Public Health, and a strong Ph.D. Prevention/Community Program.
