Abstract
The aim of this study was to investigate the sex-specific predictive
value of age of onset of delinquent behaviors, callous-unemotional (CU)
traits, and anger-irritability problems for externalizing behavior
problems in institutionalized adolescents over the course of 1 year. A
total of 118 girls and 240 boys from child welfare and juvenile justice
institutions were evaluated twice: At T1, age of onset, CU traits,
anger-irritability problems, nonverbal reasoning, and externalizing
behavior problems were measured; at T2 (later), externalizing behavior
problems were measured a second time. Results showed significant
interactions between sex and anger-irritability problems, and between
sex and CU traits, in the sense that the relation between these two
predictors at T1 and externalizing behavior problems at T2 was stronger
in girls than in boys. Results of this study point out sex differences
in the validity of predictors of externalizing behavior problems.
