Problematic behaviors - such as alcohol or drug use, aggression, or self-injury - occur relatively frequently in some youth with a mild intellectual disability. In this PhD project, daily diary sampling via a mobile phone application is used to assess behavioral patterns of these at-risk youth. We explore the method’s feasibility for the target group. Behavioral dynamics and complex interactions with cognition, affect and context are then studied at the individual and group level. Finally, an existing personality-tailored prevention programme for substance use is further developed by integrating it with daily diary sampling. Mixed-method research assesses programme effectiveness and idiosyncratic change mechanisms.
