Grounded in an assets framework, the authors explored the protective role of personal, family, school, and…

Thompson, R. Bruce; Corsello, Maryann; McReynolds, Samuel; Conklin-Powers, Bernice – Mentoring & Tutoring: Partnership in Learning, 2013
In this study, we explored socioeconomic status (SES) and family structure as predictors of resiliencies among "at-risk" youth before and after participating in schools-based mentoring programs. Twenty-four youths (13 girls) aged 13-18 ("M" = 16.21, SD = 1.76) participated. Youths completed pre- and post-test…

Scales, Peter C.; Benson, Peter L.; Roehlkepartain, Eugene C.; Sesma, Arturo, Jr.; van Dulmen, Manfred – Journal of Adolescence, 2006
A sample of 370 students in the 7th-9th grades in 1998 was followed for 3 years through the 10th-12th grades in order to investigate the relation of ''developmental assets''--positive relationships, opportunities, skills, values, and self-perceptions--to academic achievement over time, using actual GPA as the key outcome variable. The greater the…

Li, Yibing; Lerner, Jacqueline V.; Lerner, Richard M. – Journal of Youth and Adolescence, 2010
Although the role of school engagement in influencing children's academic competence has been recognized in past theory and research, how school engagement may mediate the relationships between ecological and personal resources and academic competence remains largely unknown. Using structural equation modeling procedures, the present study was…

Balsano, Aida B.; Phelps, Erin; Theokas, Christina; Lerner, Jacqueline V.; Lerner, Richard M. – Journal of Research on Adolescence, 2009
Theory and research suggest that structured, out-of-school-time activities, and in particular youth development programs aimed at promoting positive youth development (PYD), are key developmental assets for such development. Using longitudinal data from 945 fifth and sixth graders participating in the 4-H Study of PYD, initial descriptive…

This longitudinal study tested the "influence of involvement" and "selection" hypotheses for the association between religious versus non-religious activity involvement and two salient indicators of adolescent psychosocial adjustment (substance use and academic achievement). Participants included 3,993 Canadian adolescents…

Burton, Linda – Family Relations, 2007
This article presents an emergent conceptual model of childhood adultification and economic disadvantage derived from 5 longitudinal ethnographies of children and adolescents growing up in low-income families. Childhood adultification involves contextual, social, and developmental processes in which youth are prematurely, and often…

Wray-Lake, Laura; Syvertsen, Amy K.; Flanagan, Constance A. – Developmental Psychology, 2016
Social responsibility can be defined as a set of prosocial values representing personal commitments to contribute to community and society. Little is known about developmental change--and predictors of that change--in social responsibility during adolescence. The present study used an accelerated longitudinal research design to investigate the…

Walker, Janet S., Ed. – Research and Training Center on Family Support and Children's Mental Health, 2005
This issue of "Focal Point" explores the concepts of resilience and recovery and what they mean in the context of mental health care for children and adolescents. From the articles, it emerges that the terminology associated with recovery and resilience (particularly the word, recovery, itself) can be confusing and even off-putting to…

Bowers, Edmond P.; von Eye, Alexander; Lerner, Jacqueline V.; Arbeit, Miriam R.; Weiner, Michelle B.; Chase, Paul; Agans, Jennifer P. – Journal of Adolescence, 2011
Two theoretical perspectives have been proposed to describe, explain, and intervene in adolescent development--prevention science and positive youth development (PYD). An integrative model bridging these two perspectives posits that it is important to assess the extent to which the same, similar, or complementary mechanisms may be responsible for…

Lerner, Richard M.; Lerner, Jacqueline V.; von Eye, Alexander; Bowers, Edmond P.; Lewin-Bizan, Selva – Journal of Adolescence, 2011
We introduce this special issue on the individual and contextual bases of adolescent thriving by describing the relational developmental systems theory-based, positive youth development (PYD) perspective that frames much of contemporary research about health and positive development across the adolescent period and that, more specifically, frames…

Scales, Peter C.; Benson, Peter L.; Mannes, Marc – Journal of Community Psychology, 2006
The contribution of nonfamily adults to young people's well-being was explored using both a cross-sectional national sample of 614 12- to 17-year-olds and a longitudinal sample of 370 students followed from 6th-8th grades through 10th-12th grades. Both variable- and person-centered analyses were employed. Young people's involvement in…

Gestsdottir, Steinunn; Geldhof, G. John; Lerner, Jacqueline V.; Lerner, Richard M. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2017
The "5 Cs of PYD Model" is an influential theory involving the role of Intentional Self-Regulation (ISR) in positive youth development (PYD). The model, which was developed with U.S. populations, has recently been used in other cultural contexts and, as such, the measurement invariance of the ISR-PYD model across cultural contexts must…

Shin, Nana; Vaughn, Brian E.; Kim, Mina; Krzysik, Lisa; Bost, Kelly K.; McBride, Brent; Santos, Antonio J.; Peceguina, Ines; Coppola, Gabrielle – Merrill-Palmer Quarterly: Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2011
Achieving consensus on the definition and measurement of social competence (SC) for preschool children has proven difficult in the developmental sciences. We tested a hierarchical model in which SC is assumed to be a second-order latent variable by using longitudinal data (N = 345). We also tested the degree to which peer SC at Time 1 predicted…
