DIAZ RODRIGUEZ, Cecilia Lourdes  and  GONZALEZ RAMIREZ, Mónica Teresa. Problem behaviors in adolescents in the city of Monterrey, Mexico. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.33, pp.1-16. ISSN 1695-6141.

In this paper, we compare the surveys that we applied to the Mexico population in relation to problem behaviors in adolescents (alcohol, snuff or tobacco, drugs, unprotected sex, accidents and eating habits), as compared to the Problem Behaviors Questionnaire which measures the presence or absence of problem behaviors and the occurrence of these behaviors in the environments in which it operates teenager (family, friends, neighborhood and school). We used a non-experimental, cross-sectional, descriptive and evaluated the problem behaviors of 551 adolescents in first semester (M = 14.8 years, SD = 2.35) high school level of a public institution of the City of Monterrey, NL Mexico. The results show that it is necessary to analyze the phenomena from a larger descriptive survey involving the environments in which they carried out the phenomenon measured in order to understand the needs of each population as well as perform psychoeducational programs aimed at the needs identified.
