Adverse experiences throughout development confer risk for a multitude of negative long-term outcomes, but the processes via which these experiences are neurobiologically embedded are still unclear. Adolescence provides an opportunity to understand how these experiences impact the brain's rapidly changing structure. Two models are central to…

The purpose of this study was to examine whether school discipline sanctions issued to female students are attributed to their racial background and developmental status and if this relation differs by teacher's racial/ethnic background and discipline philosophy. Drawing from a sample of 515 practicing educators from the United States, the authors…

Paechter, Carrie – Gender and Education, 2021
Ideas about gender are changing. The UK and other countries are moving towards altering laws about gender recognition. Intersex people can be recognised as such in some countries. In the global North, nonbinary identities are becoming more common, and this is reflected in changes to recording systems. Referrals to child gender identity clinics are…

Zihua Ye; Karen D. Rudolph – Developmental Psychology, 2024
Theory and research highlight the mismatch between puberty-associated challenges and personal coping resources among youth with early actual or perceived pubertal timing. This study (N = 167; M[subscript age] = 12.41 years; 51.5% female; 77.8% White American) examined whether coping resources provided by mothers (maternal socialization of coping)…

Sally Hang; Geneva M. Jost; Amanda E. Guyer; Richard W. Robins; Paul D. Hastings; Camelia E. Hostinar – Child Development Perspectives, 2024
Loneliness becomes more prevalent as youth transition from childhood into adolescence. A key underlying process may be the puberty-related increase in biological stress reactivity, which can alter social behavior and elicit conflict or social withdrawal (fight-or-flight behaviors) in some youth, but increase prosocial (tend-and-befriend) responses…

DePasquale, Carrie E.; Herzberg, Max P.; Gunnar, Megan R. – Child Development Perspectives, 2021
Recent research has suggested that the pubertal period provides an opportunity for recalibrating the stress-responsive systems in youth whose responses to stress have been altered by early adversity. Such recalibration may have cascading effects that affect brain and behavioral development. In this article, we consider a large, cross-species…

Barker, D.; Varea, V.; Bergentoft, H.; Schubring, A. – Sport, Education and Society, 2023
Physical education (PE) has significant potential to shape how young people experience their own and others' bodies. This potential has not always been realized in positive ways and some research suggests that experiences in PE have contributed to young people's dissatisfaction with their appearances. The broad aim of this review is to provide a…

Weimer, Kristina R.; Rutkowski, Joanne – Music Educators Journal, 2023
When working with beginning instrumentalists, many music educators emphasize executive skills specific to the mechanics of playing an instrument. However, beginning students can also benefit from focused vocal instruction as a complement to their musical growth in the instrumental setting. Because instrumental music educators may feel ill equipped…

Black, Candace J.; McEwen, Fiona S.; Smeeth, Demelza; Popham, Cassandra M.; Karam, Elie; Pluess, Michael – Developmental Psychology, 2023
Increasing research shows pubertal development accelerates following threats while it decelerates following deprivation. Yet, these environmental stressors are unlikely to occur in isolation. We investigated how war exposure and energetic stress impact pubertal development using data from the longitudinal Biological Pathways of Risk and Resilience…

Dhaliwal, Khushmol K.; Avedzi, Hayford M.; Richard, Caroline; Zwaigenbaum, Lonnie; Haqq, Andrea M. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2023
We examined the relationship between weight status, appetite regulating hormones, and mealtime behaviors among children, (5-12 years old), diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in a cross-sectional study. All (N = 21) completed anthropometry measurements and (n = 18) provided blood samples for hormone analysis. Mealtime behavior, dietary,…

Literature has documented inflated rates of features associated with autism spectrum (AS) in clinic referred, gender diverse young people. This study examined scores on the Social Responsiveness Scale, Second Edition (SRS-2) over time in a group of clinic referred, gender diverse adolescents accessing gonadotropin-releasing hormone analogues…

Kanwar, Palak – European Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2021
Pubertal timing carries social as well as psychological implications. It is observed that adolescents rely upon their families, friends and other social circles for learning important skills that help them to cope with the pressures they face during the pubertal transition towards adulthood successfully. Since behavioural response to puberty also…

This study employed semi-structured interviews and Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis to explore experiences of on-time maturation in nine adolescent ballet dancers from across three vocational ballet schools in the United Kingdom. Two themes were identified as central to their experiences: 'A right and a wrong way to grow', and fitting in…
