Paceley, Megan S.; Fish, Jessica N.; Thomas, Margaret M. C.; Goffnett, Jacob – Youth & Society, 2020
Sexual and gender minority (SGM) youth experience high rates of victimization leading to health disparities. Community size and community climate are associated with health outcomes among SGM youth; however, we lack studies that include them as covariates alongside victimization to understand their collective impact on health. This study utilized…

Conway-Turner, Jameela; Visconti, Kari; Winsler, Adam – Youth & Society, 2020

Wright, Michelle F. – Youth & Society, 2020
Little attention has focused on how adolescents' perceptions of the pressure to be popular or socially preferred from parents, friends, and the media influence their engagement in face-to-face and cyber aggressive and prosocial behaviors. The present study examined these relationships among 857 seventh graders (M age = 12.19; 50.8% girls) from…

Buckley, Lisa; Chapman, Rebekah L. – Youth & Society, 2020
Adolescent intentional and unintentional injury is commonly related to involvement in violence and transportation behaviors. While many risk and promotive factors have been identified, a cumulative assessment of such factors is less common, and this has rarely been undertaken with transportation behaviors. The study involved Australian adolescents…

Lehman, Brett – Youth & Society, 2020
Relational aggression involves excluding peers from social activities and spreading harmful rumors about the victim. Assumptions that only girls are victimized in this way are largely debunked, yet there is little research to explain why boys are victimized in this manner. This study poses the possibility that male adolescent victimization by…

Mishna, Faye; Schwan, Kaitlin J.; Birze, Arija; Van Wert, Melissa; Lacombe-Duncan, Ashley; McInroy, Lauren; Attar-Schwartz, Shalhevet – Youth & Society, 2020
Drawing on semistructured interviews with Canadian Grade 4 to 12 students, this article uses a feminist lens to explore gendered and sexualized bullying and cyberbullying among children and youth. Our findings indicate that while boys' roles and behaviors were frequently made invisible, girls were typically spotlighted, blamed, and criticized.…

These links are examined with data from the 2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (n = 9,122). Using cluster analysis, respondents are…

Kim, Jinho – Youth & Society, 2020
Given large variations in the etiology and developmental trajectories of violent and nonviolent delinquency, this study examines whether educational outcomes of violent and nonviolent offenders might differ. In particular, this study attempts to remove environmental influences such as family background and neighborhood effects from the effects of…

Using data from 223 Latino adolescents residing in poor, urban neighborhoods, we investigate whether spirituality, religious importance at home, and religious involvement moderate the relation between community violence exposure and psychological well-being.

Cheung, Nicole W. T. – Youth & Society, 2020
Although gender has become a key dimension in migration research, previous scholarship has largely focused on adult rather than child migrants. Even less attention has been paid to the role of gender in migration-related child health. By comparing rural migrant and urban-born adolescents in the largest city in south China, this study assessed…

Zaff, Jonathan F.; Malone, Thomas – Youth & Society, 2020
The U.S. high school dropout rate continues to decline. Possible reasons for this decline include stronger academic standards, persistent state and district actions, and implementation of programs to help disconnected youth reconnect to educational opportunities. In the current study, we propose a complementary hypothesis for rate improvements:…

Theron, Linda – Youth & Society, 2020
This aim of this article is to account for the resilience of adolescents who are challenged by structural disadvantage and to highlight that how adolescent resilience is accounted for depends on whether adolescent or adult views are foregrounded. To do so, I report a South African phenomenological study. I draw on a thematic content analysis of…

Barboza, Gia Elise – Youth & Society, 2020
Previous methodological approaches have not been flexible enough to model the heterogeneity of depressive symptoms or to identify variations between prototypical trajectories conditional on risk and protective factors.

Augustyn, Megan Bears; Jackson, Dylan B. – Youth & Society, 2020
Research suggests a link between precocious transitions to adulthood (e.g., high school dropout) and maladaptation, and this association is typically assumed to be uniform. We propose that this monolithic portrayal of precocious transitions as problematic for adult functioning is unwarranted, particularly across identities defined by gender,…
