Lerner, Richard M.; Lerner, Jacqueline V.; De Stefanis, Imma; Apfel, Alison
Journal of Adolescent Research, v16 n1 p9-27 Jan 2001
Discusses contemporary theories of adolescence, stressing developmental systems models that integrate individual and contextual levels of analysis. Maintains that adolescence should be studied with multivariate-longitudinal designs, change-sensitive measures, and data analytic strategies capitalizing on triangulation across quantitative and qualitative methods. Maintains that such research will inform policies and programs promoting positive development, but will require training innovations. (Author/KB)
