Guo, Jinhong; Mrug, Sylvie; Knight, David C. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
This study examined coping strategies as mediators of the relationship between parental emotion socialization and internalizing problems in late adolescence and emerging adulthood, and whether these relationships varied by gender or ethnicity. Participants were 1,087 individuals (M[subscript age]?=?19.35 years; 50% male; 61% African American, 36%…

Strasser, Irene – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
Many well-established developmental theories concentrate on strategies of regulation and try to explain how individuals compensate for possible losses in old age. In public debates, and in laypeople's perception of aging, however, activity and productivity seem to be central concepts associated with successful aging. The present research focuses…

Mrug, Sylvie; Tindell, Courtney N.; McDonald, Kristina L. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
This study examines individual and family predictors of disrespect sensitivity in urban adolescents. Seventy-five adolescents from Southeastern USA (95% African American, 52% female) participated in two waves of a longitudinal study (mean ages 16.1 and 17.8 years, SDs?=?1.11). Youth reported on their disrespect sensitivity at both time points, as…

Lo, L. Y.; Ng, T. C.; Lin, M.; Thompson, N. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
Diversified emotional responses are generally referred as the evidence of showing categorical perception of major and minor modes. Yet it is uncertain whether the categorical performance is independent to the emotion tagging. This study therefore adopted a direct measure with the proper controlled stimuli to reexamine the categorial nature of…

Charalampous, Kyriakos; Ioannou, Myria; Georgiou, Stelios; Stavrinides, Panayiotis – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
The present study sought to examine the independent, hierarchical, and integrative models of multiple attachment relationships in a sample of Greek-Cypriots in middle adolescence and to test the distinct and interactive effects of these relationships on bullying involvement. A sample of Greek-Cypriot adolescents (N?=?406, 55.4% females,…

Uysal, Burcu; Stemmler, Mark; Weiss, Maren – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
Immigrant boys show higher rates of antisocial behaviour. However, results of previous studies showed some contradictory findings in terms of intercultural differences in antisocial behaviour. In our study, we used an intercultural comparison of antisocial behaviour based on two different definitions of migration status (nationality vs. migration…

Gorzig, Anke; Bedrosova, Marie; Machackova, Hana – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
It was investigated whether different types of mental or developmental disorders (MDD) would be rated differently in terms of stereotypic perceptions and behavioral tendencies and whether these effects of stereotypes on behaviors would be mediated via emotional responses in line with the Stereotype Content Model (SCM). Furthermore, an experimental…

Farrell, Carmen Brown; Gilpin, Ansley Tullos; Nancarrow, Alexandra F.; Brown, Melissa M. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
Self-regulation and social cognition flourish as children begin school and engage with a new social environment. At the same time, this novel setting provides more complex social situations that children must navigate, including understanding when others may be lying to them. Social cognition and self regulatory abilities, such as Theory of Mind…

The standardized, indicated school-based prevention program "Networks Against School Shootings" (NETWASS) combines a threat assessment approach with a general model of prevention of emergency situations in schools through early intervention in student psychosocial crises and training teachers to recognize warning signs of targeted school…

Bäck, Emma A.; Bäck, Hanna; Altermark, Niklas; Knapton, Holly – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
It is a human fundamental to desire to be valued, loved and respected--to be significant. Social exclusion induce significance loss which elicits a 'quest for significance'--the search for opportunities to re-gain significance. The present article establishes this relation in a laboratory experiment (N = 71, mean age = 28, SD = 10.42, 65% women,…

Pauwels, Lieven J. R.; Hardyns, Wim – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
In the present study, the interaction between specific measures of endorsement for extremism (e.g. endorsement for religious, left-wing or far-right extremism), thrill-seeking, and active online exposure to extremism via social media with regard to the explanation of politically and/or religiously motivated aggression is investigated. While the…

Böckler, Nils; Leuschner, Vincenz; Zick, Andreas; Scheithauer, Herbert – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
Analysis of incidents over the past ten years in Germany reveals that the boundaries between targeted attacks in schools and terrorist attacks are starting to blur. Bockler, Leuschner, Roth, Zick, and Scheithauer (2018) recently presented a set of hypotheses about similarities between the developmental pathways of school attackers and lone actor…

Perry, Gali; Wikstrom, Per-Olof H.; Roman, Gabriela D. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
The Situational Action Theory of crime submits that law-related morality, the ability to exercise self-control, and exposure to criminogenic settings are key predictors of both regular criminality and violent extremism. Indeed, morality and self-control were found to be significantly correlated with violent extremism, and especially right-wing…

Macdougall, Alex I.; van der Veen, Jaap; Feddes, Allard R.; Nickolson, Lars; Doosje, Bertjan – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
Radicalising individuals gradually accept violence as legitimate to instigate political and/or societal changes. In two studies, we investigate the beginning phase of the radicalisation process. We examine whether different trajectories into radicalism can be distinguished based on underlying needs, related to identity, injustice, sensation, or…
