Stroud, Catherine B.; Sosoo, Effua E.; Wilson, Sylia – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2018
Nolen-Hoeksema proposed that rumination increases stressful events and circumstances; however, few studies have examined this question. Thus, we explored whether (a) rumination predicted increases in the generation of chronic and acute stress, (b) excessive reassurance seeking (ERS) mediated links between rumination and stress generation, (c)…

Self-report…

We sought to examine whether (a) media internalization…

Garcia, Antonio R.; Metraux, Stephen; Chen, Chin-Chih; Park, Jung Min; Culhane, Dennis P.; Furstenberg, Frank F. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2018
Youth who receive services from public mental health, child welfare and delinquency, and homeless systems are often exposed to a number of overlapping child, family, school, and community risk factors. Minimal research, however, has focused on the extent to which single- or multiple-system involvement influences school dropout. Relying on an…
