CAMELO ROA, Sandra Milena; OLIVARES PEREZ, Teresa; CARBALLEIRA ABELLA, Mónica  y  BETANCORT, Moisés. Executive Functions and Clinical Adjustment in Colombian Adolescents Polydrug. Ter Psicol [online]. 2019, vol.37, n.2, pp.141-153. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082019000200141.

The research aim was to analyze the executive functioning and the clinical adjustment in a sample of Colombian teen polydrug users. An ex post facto study was carried out with 204 participants, 12–17 years old (M= 14,50, SD = 1,71). The neuropsychological test BANFE-2 was applied for analyzing frontal lobes and executive functioning and the Rosenberg self esteem scale, a COPE questionnaire, the Dickman impulsivity scale and the SCL-90-R questionnaire were used for clinical adjustment respectively. A lower executive functioning throughput were observed in polydrug users. Low self-esteem, high dysfunctional impulsivity, high diverse psychopathologies and coping strategies for drug use were also observed. A predictor effect between age and consumption time on the executive functioning were also determined. A lower throughput in younger polydrug users increase through consumption time.

Palabras clave : Polydrug users; executive functioning; clinical adjustment; adolescence and consumption time.
