Factors Related To Adolescents' Willingness To Address The Unsafe Behaviours Of Their Friends

Buckley, Lisa (2006) Factors Related To Adolescents' Willingness To Address The Unsafe Behaviours Of Their Friends. In 8th World Conference on Injury, 2-5 April 2006, Durban, South Africa.


For many countries, injury is a leading cause of adolescent mortality and burden of disease. In Australia, more than two thirds of the deaths of young people are a result of injury (AIHW, 2004). One of the significant contributors to injury, particularly injury related to road use and violence, is adolescent risk-taking behaviour. A strong and consistent finding of research into the risk and protective factors of risk-taking behaviour is adolescents’ peer relationships. Most commonly, however, negative aspects of peer relations are emphasised in terms of their impact on adolescents’ risk-taking behaviour. This research seeks to determine peers’ potential in protecting adolescents from risk-taking behaviour and subsequent injury.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
