ADOLESCENT CHOICE AND DECISION-MAKING--A REVIEW OF DECISION-MAKING MODELS AND ISSUES IN RELATION TO SOME DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE TASKS OF ADOLESCENCE.
DINKLAGE, LILLIAN B.
CURRENT MODELS OF DECISION-MAKING AND RELATED RESEARCH IN CONNECTION WITH CERTAIN DEVELOPMENTAL TASKS OF ADOLESCENTS WERE REVIEWED. THE DECISION ELEMENTS RECEIVING THEORETICAL ATTENTION WERE (1) DECISION-PROCESS PHASES, (2) DECISION-OUTCOME PROBABILITIES AND STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS, (3) DECISION-PLAN DIMENSIONS, (4) DECISION STRATEGIES, AND (5) DECIDER TRAITS, NEEDS, DRIVES, AND SOCIAL CONTEXT. VOCATIONAL MATURITY AND DEVELOPMENTAL READINESS WERE DISCUSSED IN RELATION TO CAREER DEVELOPMENT, DYNAMIC DECISION PROCESSES, PERSONALITY FACTORS, AND TYPES OF DECIDERS. A REVIEW OF ADOLESCENT COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT INDICATED THAT IT WAS A CONTINUOUS AND TENTATIVE PROCESS AND FREQUENTLY WAS BASED ON MORE PSYCHOLOGICAL ELEMENTS THAN LOGICAL ONES. IN ADDITION, MANY STAGE TASKS CALLED FOR AND WOULD BE ENHANCED BY A GROWING COMPETENCE IN DECISION-MAKING. (GC)
