Bell, Megan F.; Bayliss, Donna M.; Glauert, Rebecca; Ohan, Jeneva L. – Developmental Psychology, 2018
There is evidence that children of incarcerated parents are at risk of poor developmental and educational outcomes. However, much of this evidence is limited by biased samples, as studies must rely on opt-in recruitment. Administrative data present an opportunity to overcome this challenge, as they capture information on all incarcerated…

Hwang, Yoon-Suk; Dillon-Wallace, Julie; Campbell, Marilyn; Ashburner, Jill; Saggers, Beth; Carrington, Suzanne; Hand, Kirstine – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2018
Students with ASC are at heightened risk for bullying and their understanding of bullying is known to protect them from involvement in it (Humphrey and Hebron 2015). However, only a handful of studies have examined how students with ASC understand traditional bullying and none of them focused on cyberbullying. To fill this gap, we investigated how…

Chung, Ethel; Turnbull, Deborah; Chur-Hansen, Anna – Active Learning in Higher Education, 2017
Resilience is related to students' well-being and academic success. While challenges associated with students who are from historically underrepresented backgrounds (i.e. "non-traditional students") have been frequently reported, their resilience has received lesser attention. The primary purpose of this study was to compare levels of…

Uink, Bep Norma; Modecki, Kathryn Lynn; Barber, Bonnie L. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2017
Previous Experience Sampling Method (ESM) studies demonstrate that adolescents' daily emotional states are heavily influenced by their immediate social context. However, despite adolescence being a risk period for exposure to daily stressors, research has yet to examine the influence of peers on adolescents' emotional responses to stressors…
