Rights, Jason D.; Sterba, Sonya K. – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Developmental researchers commonly utilize multilevel models (MLMs) to describe and predict individual differences in change over time. In such growth model applications, researchers have been widely encouraged to supplement reporting of statistical significance with measures of effect size, such as R-squareds ("R[superscript 2]") that…

Wu, Wei; Jia, Fan – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Longitudinal panel studies are widely used in developmental science to address important research questions on human development across the lifespan. These studies, however, are often challenging to implement. They can be costly, time-consuming, and vulnerable to test--retest effects or high attrition over time. Planned missingness designs (PMDs),…

Johnson, Sara K. – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Developmental scientists are often interested in subgroups of people who share commonalities in aspects of development; these subgroups often cannot be captured directly but instead must be inferred from other information. Mixture models can be used in these situations. Two specific types of mixture models, latent profile transition analyses and…

Grimm, Kevin J.; Helm, Jonathan; Rodgers, Danielle; O'Rourke, Holly – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Developmental researchers often have research questions about cross-lag effects--the effect of one variable predicting a second variable at a subsequent time point. The cross-lag panel model (CLPM) is often fit to longitudinal panel data to examine cross-lag effects; however, its utility has recently been called into question because of its…

Serang, Sarfaraz – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Longitudinal research is often interested in identifying correlates of heterogeneity in change. This paper compares three approaches for doing so: the mixed-effects model (latent growth curve model), the growth mixture model, and structural equation model trees. Each method is described, with special focus given to how each structures…

Yan, Jinjin; Sim, Lester; Schwartz, Seth J.; Shen, Yishan; Parra-Medina, Deborah; Kim, Su Yeong – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Prior studies investigating the association between acculturation and adolescent adjustment have often focused on specific acculturation domains rather than examining these domains collectively in a profile typology. Here, we investigate stability and change patterns in Mexican American adolescent acculturation profiles over time, using a two-wave…

Vos, Saskia R.; Clark-Ginsberg, Aaron; Puente-Duran, Sofia; Salas-Wright, Christopher P.; Duque, Maria C.; Herrera, Ivonne Calderón; Maldonado-Molina, Mildred M.; Castillo, Melissa N.; Lee, Tae Kyoung; Garcia, Maria Fernanda; Fernandez, Cristina A.; Hanson, Marissa; Scaramutti, Carolina; Schwartz, Seth J. – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Crisis migration refers to displacement of large numbers of individuals and families from their home countries due to wars, dictatorial governments, and other critical hazards (e.g., hurricanes). Although crisis migration can adversely influence direct and indirect effects on the mental health of adults and their children collectively as families,…

Cavdar, Duygu; McKeown, Shelley; Rose, Jo – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Identity development can be challenging for adolescents, particularly those from immigrant families who are required to make sense of their identity whilst accommodating themselves into different cultures. For second-generation ethnic minority adolescents, these identity formation processes may range from harmony/effectiveness to conflict/stress,…

Chávez, Daniela; Palacios, Diego; Luengo-Kanacri, Bernadette Paula; Berger, Christian; Jiménez-Moya, Gloria – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Cross-ethnic friendships offer a unique opportunity for improving intergroup relations and reduce prejudice, yet ethnic segregation of friendship networks is often seen as a major obstacle to the integration of immigrant students in educational contexts. This article examines the role of perspective-taking abilities and prejudice towards low…

Pérez, Isabela E.; Wu, Rachel; Murray, Carolyn B.; Bravo, Diamond – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
With increasing rates of globalization, understanding the cultural factors that promote positive adaptation in migrant children and adolescents is vital. In prior research, acculturation and enculturation frameworks often rely on unidimensional or bidimensional conceptions of culture to study the effects of migration on child and adolescent…

Akgül, Gülendam; Klimstra, Theo; Çok, Figen – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Increasing immigration around the world has affected the lives of children and adolescents. The ability to cope with the stress of migration and adaptation to a new culture likely is an important protective factor for optimal identity development under these conditions. The present study examined the role of coping strategies in interpersonal…

Wang, Jun; Chen, Chen; Gong, Xinmei – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
The positive development of migrant children in China is hampered due to their unequal accessibility to quality urban education resources. This research aimed at exploring the developmental trajectories of migrant and urban children's literacy and mathematics performance, as well as the impact of family socioeconomic status (SES) and parenting…

Gyberg, Fanny; Svensson, Ylva; Wängqvist, Maria; Syed, Moin – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Experiences of discrimination and links to well-being have been examined extensively, but several gaps remain. The current study addresses four of those gaps by (1) examining both aggregated and source-specific forms of discrimination, (2) comparing the experiences of minority and majority group members, (3) expanding the range of outcomes to…

Patel, Sita G.; Bouche, Vicky; Martinez, William; Barajas, Karla; Garcia, Alex; Sztainer, Maya; Hawkins, Kathleen – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
There has been a record surge of unaccompanied immigrant minors (UAMs) entering the United States, with 86% of those apprehended at the US-Mexico border originating from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. A majority of immigrant children are separated from either one or both parents at various points during the…

Benbow, Alison E. F.; Aumann, Lara; Paizan, Madalina A.; Titzmann, Peter F. – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2021
Perceived social support can help immigrant youth to deal with developmental acculturation: the simultaneous resolution of developmental and acculturative tasks. This person-oriented three-wave comparative study investigated perceived social support trajectories in two immigrant and one non-immigrant group. We investigated whether similar social…
