Zweers, Inge; van de Schoot, Rens A. G. J.; Tick, Nouchka T.; Depaoli, Sarah; Clifton, James P.; de Castro, Bram Orobio; Bijstra, Jan O. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
The present study investigated (1) how social relationships with teachers and peers and self-esteem of students with social-emotional and behavioral difficulties (SEBD) in inclusive regular education (regular schools) and students with SEBD in exclusive special education (special schools) develop over time in comparison with each other and in…

Ayalon, Liat; Cohn-Schwartz, Ella – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Objectives: The present study evaluated the reciprocal temporal associations between one's subjective age (or felt age) and one's social relations in the adult day care center (ADCC) over two waves of data collection, spread about 1 year apart. Method: Participants from four ADCCs in Israel were approached in 2017 and repeatedly, in 2018 (N = 224…

Grimm, Kevin J.; Fine, Kimberly; Stegmann, Gabriela – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Modeling within-person change over time and between-person differences in change over time is a primary goal in prevention science. When modeling change in an observed score over time with multilevel or structural equation modeling approaches, each observed score counts toward the estimation of model parameters equally. However, observed scores…

Nakagawa, Takeshi; Nishita, Yukiko; Tange, Chikako; Tomida, Makiko; Kinoshita, Kaori; Otsuka, Rei; Ando, Fujiko; Shimokata, Hiroshi – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Prior evidence suggests that subjective well-being (SWB) remains relatively stable across adulthood. However, longitudinal evidence is sparse except in Western societies such as North America and Western Europe. We examined age-related changes in SWB (life satisfaction, positive affect, and negative affect) among middle-aged and older Japanese. We…

Hecht, Martin; Voelkle, Manuel C. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
The analysis of cross-lagged relationships is a popular approach in prevention research to explore the dynamics between constructs over time. However, a limitation of commonly used cross-lagged models is the requirement of equally spaced measurement occasions that prevents the usage of flexible longitudinal designs and complicates cross-study…

Jensen, Michaeline; Hussong, Andrea M. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
The ubiquity of digital communication within the high-risk drinking environment of college students raises exciting new directions for prevention research. However, we are lacking relevant constructs and tools to analyze digital platforms that serve to facilitate, discuss, and rehash alcohol use. In the current study, we introduce the construct of…

Kelly, Michelle P.; Reed, Phil – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Stimulus over-selectivity is said to have occurred when only a limited subset of the total number of stimuli present during discrimination learning controls behavior, thus, restricting learning about the range, breadth, or all features of a stimulus. The current study investigated over-selectivity of 100 typically developing children, aged 3-7…

Rioux, Charlie; Little, Todd D. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Missing data are ubiquitous in studies examining preventive interventions. This missing data need to be handled appropriately for data analyses to yield unbiased results. After a brief discussion of missing data mechanisms, inappropriate missing data treatments and appropriate missing data treatments, we review the current state of missing data…

Curran, Patrick J.; Georgeson, A. R.; Bauer, Daniel J.; Hussong, Andrea M. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Conducting valid and reliable empirical research in the prevention sciences is an inherently difficult and challenging task. Chief among these is the need to obtain numerical scores of underlying theoretical constructs for use in subsequent analysis. This challenge is further exacerbated by the increasingly common need to consider multiple…

Deboeck, Pascal R.; Cole, David A.; Preacher, Kristopher J.; Forehand, Rex; Compas, Bruce E. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Many interventions are characterized by repeated observations on the same individuals (e.g., baseline, mid-intervention, two to three post-intervention observations), which offer the opportunity to consider differences in how individuals vary over time. Effective interventions may not be limited to changing means, but instead may also include…

Niccols, Alison; Cunningham, Charles; Pettingill, Peter; Bohaychuk, Donna; Duku, Eric – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Despite the availability of effective early interventions, few preschoolers with mental health issues receive these services. This situation exists partly due to challenges in the identification of emotional and behavioral issues in young children. We developed the Brief Child and Family Intake and Outcomes System for Preschoolers, which is a…

Hascoët, Marine; Giaconi, Valentina; Jamain, Ludivine – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Family socioeconomic status (SES) has a significant influence on children's academic success and is related to parents' attitudes toward education. Moreover, according to the expectancy-value theory, parental expectations are linked to their children's perceptions of school, which, in turn, influences the way their children invest themselves in…

Bijsterbosch, Geraly; Mobach, Lynn; Verpaalen, Iris A. M.; Bijlstra, Gijsbert; Hudson, Jennifer L.; Rinck, Mike; Klein, Anke M. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
To draw valid and reliable conclusions from child studies involving facial expressions, well-controlled and validated (child) facial stimuli are necessary. The current study is the first to validate the facial emotional expressions of child models in school-aged children. In this study, we validated the Radboud Faces Database child models in a…

Ihle, Andreas; Ghisletta, Paolo; Gouveia, Élvio R.; Gouveia, Bruna R.; Oris, Michel; Maurer, Jürgen; Kliegel, Matthias – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
Objectives: From a longitudinal perspective, the direction of the relationship between cognitive functioning and well-being in old age, both conceptually and empirically, is still under debate. Therefore, we aimed to disentangle the different longitudinal relationship patterns proposed and whether those differed between young-old and old-old…

Marcoulides, Katerina M. – International Journal of Behavioral Development, 2021
The purpose of this research note is to introduce a latent growth curve reconstruction approach based on the Tabu search algorithm. The approach algorithmically enables researchers to optimally determine at both the individual and the group levels the order of the polynomial needed to represent the latent growth curve model. The procedure is…
