JIMENEZ-BARBERO, José Antonio; RUIZ-HERNANDEZ, José Antonio; VELANDRINO-NICOLAS, Antonio Pablo  and  LLOR-ZARAGOZA, Laura. Attitudes towards violence, impulsivity, parenting styles and externalized behavior in adolescents: comparison between a general and a clinical samples. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.1, pp.132-138. ISSN 1695-2294.

Externalizing Behavior Disorders are one of the most common mental health problems among adolescents, and they have a severe impact on family, school, and social settings. The purpose of this study was to compare adolescents from the general population without an externalizing behavior diagnosis with adolescents from a clinical sample in a series of variables identified as predictors of externalizing behavior. The study included adolescents aged between 12-15 years from the Region of Murcia. A cross-sectional, descriptive, analytical design was used with a sample of 327 adolescents, who were distributed as follows: (a) Clinical Group, made up of 59 participants, and (b) General Group, made up of 268 adolescents. The results of this study indicate that externalizing behavior is mainly related to Impulsivity, although modulated by factors related to the adolescent's family and cultural socialization. The adolescents of the clinical sample described the parental styles they received as more authoritarian and less inductive than those of the adolescents from the general population.

Keywords : Behavior disorders; externalization; impulsivity; parental styles; attitudes.
