abstract

  • This paper presents an integrative framework for etiological research about Hispanic adolescent drug use. The integrative framework provides a logical, theoretically grounded approach for linking immigrant and native born Hispanic adolescents and their parents to social environments, and describes the contingencies of social psychological adaptation that occur within these environments. Substantive findings from previous research are presented to support the integrative framework. The integrative framework provides a rational basis for organizing complex concepts and synthesizing fragmentary or competing theoretical approaches, and for empirically testing derived hypotheses using quantitative and qualitative methods.
