"I Met This Wife of Mine and Things Got onto a Better Track" Turning Points in Risk Development.
Ronka, Anna; Oravala, Sanna; Pulkkinen, Lea
Journal of Adolescence, v25 n1 p47-63 Feb 2002
Study examines the mechanisms involved in turning-point experiences among individuals who had been exposed to several risk factors in childhood and adolescence. Results indicate that childhood experiences influence the content of turning points in adult life by shaping the direction of actual life paths. The quality of current life, however, has greater bearing on the way turning points are evaluated. (Contains 51 references, 5 tables, and 2 appendixes.) (GCP)
