Key findings (300 words)  

This article presents findings from a study that examined the issue of substance use in bi/multiracial youth. The authors suggest that bi/multiracial youth participate in substance use more frequently than monoracial youth. The study had several significant findings. Bi/multiracial youth engaged in higher use of tobacco, alcohol, marijuana, and other illicit drugs more so than other youth of color. They also engage in higher levels of marijuana use than white youth. However, findings also revealed that bi/multiracial youth were involved with more psychosocial protectors – such as being raised with a stronger anti-drug message, and having parents more involved in their lives. Many also experienced lower levels of psychosocial risk than monoracial youth, such as peer pressure.

 

One major finding presented in this article was the identification of two subgroups of bi/multiracial youth that was based on both psychosocial risk and protective factors. The first subgroup exhibited high levels of both psychosocial protection and psychosocial risk. The second group had low psychosocial protections and, and high psychosocial risk. The authors found these two groups to be different in terms of their substance use. For example, the group with low protection and high risk reported much higher levels of use of tobacco, alcohol, and other illicit drugs. This suggests that bi/multiracial youth are not homogenous, and that their heterogeneity should be considered in terms of substance use risk.

 

The authors suggest several important implications from these findings, especially in terms of designing prevention and intervention efforts aimed at bi/multiracial youth to address substance abuse. These implications take on increased importance as the population of bi/multiracial youth has been increasing significantly over time. They also suggest that these programs focus on enhancing psychosocial protections for these youth, rather than only focusing on protective factors. The authors conclude by mentioning two model programs as being exemplary with this approach – The Strong African American Families Program, and Communities That Care.

(100 words) My topic is on substance use among adolescents. This article addresses several issues that are relevant to my topic from a psychological viewpoint, including psychosocial protections and risks in the context of substance use. It also discusses a population that has been less focused on in many of the articles I have read. Since the population of bi/multiracial youth is increasing in society, this article will help to ensure that I look at this issue from the perspective of different demographics of youth.
