Future Orientation in Times of Threat and Challenge: How Resilient Adolescents Construct Their Future
Seginer, Rachel
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v32 n4 p272-282 2008
Drawing on the importance of future orientation for adolescent development this analysis presents a model describing how future orientation is affected by high challenge (or resilience) in the face of political violence. The analysis consists of three parts. The first two present future orientation conceptualization and the psychological processes underlying threat and challenge/resilience, respectively. Consequently, the third part outlines an integrated model positing that the effect of challenge/resilience on future orientation is mediated by hope and moderated by four factors: cultural orientations, developmental period, interpersonal relationships, and intrapersonal characteristics. (Contains 3 figures.)
