GRIGORAVICIUS, Marcelo Juan  e  DUCOS LOPEZ, Mercedes Alejandra. Study on the use of psychoactive substances in children between 10 and 12 years old: State of the art and preliminary results. Anu. investig. [online]. 2009, vol.16, pp. 339-348. ISSN 1851-1686.

This paper presents the preliminary results from the first stage of a multidimensional research about the psychoactive substances use. Children between 10 and 12 years old were investigated. All of them belong to low socioeconomic status families and attend to public schools in the south of Buenos Aires province. Also, their attitudes, values and beliefs towards psychoactive substances were investigated. Methods: Sample: boys and girls between 10 and 12 years old attending to a public school. N=162; boys n= 61; girls n=101. Intruments: CORIN (risk behavior in children), source: CONICET; and Sociodemographic data protocol. Results and conclusions: The 46,3% of the children reports to have consumed alcohol and the 7,4% reports to have consumed tobacco. It is concluded that legal substances, specially alcohol, are consumed and tolerated better than illegal ones. Also, there is a dissonance between beliefs and values in children regarding to alcohol and their behavior towards this substance.
