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…

The main objective of this systematic review is to synthesize the empirical evidence on how the Internet and social media may, or may not, constitute spaces for exchange that can be favorable to violent extremism. Of the 5,182 studies generated from the searches, 11 studies were eligible for inclusion in this review. We considered empirical…

van de Wetering, Denis; Zick, Andreas; Mietke, Hannah – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
This article reconstructs disengagement of women from extreme right groups not theoretically as individual decision-making process, but empirically as social identity work. A thorough analysis of qualitative interviews conducted with six female and six male former right-wing extremists demonstrates how extreme right membership identities of women…

King, Sonja; Endres, Johann; Schwab, Mariann; Stemmler, Mark; Lauchs, Lora; Armborst, Andreas – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
Violent extremism research is still lacking a sound empirical basis for the validation of assessment instruments. Yet there is a growing need for these instruments to assess the dangerousness of individuals, but also the success of interventions. By analysing prisoner files of one female and 39 male inmates (average age 28.83 years, SD = 7.58)…

Losel, Friedrich; King, Sonja; Bender, Doris; Jugl, Irina – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
Extremism and radicalization towards violence are urgent topics in many countries. Numerous research projects are carried out, of which many focus on risk factors only. In contrast, this article contains a systematic review of the rare international research on protective factors. After screening more than 2,000 documents, we found 17 reports…

Metzler, Anna; Scheithauer, Herbert – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
As Facebook enables adolescents to present themselves positively by means of their Facebook profile and to gain positive feedback for doing so, the aim of the current study is to investigate which kinds of adolescents' positive self-presentation in profile pictures and status updates are associated with positive feedback in terms of Likes from the…

Solomontos-Kountouri, Olga; Strohmeier, Dagmar – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
This study examines how bullies, victims, bully-victims, and uninvolved adolescents perceive the activities of the class project of the ViSC social competence program. The ViSC program is a whole school socio-ecological anti-bullying program that was implemented in 43 classes, grade 7, 8, and 9, in three Cypriot schools. A sample of 778…

Collette, Tyler L.; Miller, Richard L. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
The purpose of this research was to examine children's story preferences as a function of age and cultural orientation. Using Hofstede's (1984) distinction between individualism and collectivism, we examined the extent to which younger (6-8 years old, n = 47, M = 6.94, SD = 0.94) and older (9-12 years old, n = 57, M = 10.35, SD = 1.14) children…

Pfetsch, Jan; Schultze-Krumbholz, Anja; Fullgraf, Franziska – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
How others behave (descriptive norm) and what they expect from us (injunctive norm) has a strong influence on how we behave. However, children and adolescents often overestimate the prevalence of negative behavior among their peers. The current study tested whether prompting peer norms for cyberbullying may foster anti-cyberbullying norms in an…

Stefanek, Elisabeth; Strohmeier, Dagmar; Yanagida, Takuya – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2017
The goals of this study were (1) to identify groups of bullies and victims, (2) to investigate level differences in depression, peer relationships, and academic variables, and (3) to examine how peer relationships and academic variables were associated with depression in these groups. The sample comprised 1,451 students (48.6% girls) aged 10-15…
