Social, Environmental, and Cognitive Predictors of Social and Psychological Adjustment in Adolescents: A Theoretical Model.
Jordan-Davis, Walter E.; Butler, Douglas M.
This paper outlines a model that could address the interaction between an adolescent's social and personal environment and the impact that this interaction could have on an adolescent's social and psychological adjustment. In addition, a set of mediating variables based on an adolescent's self-concept was presented and discussed. The unique aspect of this model is the inclusion of self-concept as a mediating variable. This model was developed to help analyze data included in a future study that will examine factors that affect the social and psychological adjustment of adolescents enrolled in junior and senior high school (grades 7-12).
