Astrid Korner; Katharina Eckstein; Peter Noack – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2023
Although susceptibility to populist sentiments among adolescents is viewed with concern, research focusing on the nature of populism in youth is still rare. This two-wave study (approx. 10 month) among 9th grade German adolescents (T1: N= 1,205; M[subscript age] = 14.4, SD[subscript age] = 0.6; 52.1% female) examined populist attitudes as a…

There are scarce studies on bystanders' responses to racist hate speech. The present study was rooted in the general aggression model to examine the direct and indirect associations between witnessing racist hate speech and bystanders' active defending behaviors. Moreover, we examined if these associations varied as a function of the immigration…

Hedda Marx; Michael J. Boulton; Peter J. R. Macaulay – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2023
Given the crucial role of bystanders in combating bullying in schools, there is a need to understand the reasons why children may or may not intervene on behalf of a victimised peer. The aim of the present study was to explore the association between children's expectations of general peer reactions versus the reactions of their friends on three…

Maor Shani; Sophie de Lede; Stefanie Richters; Malin Kleuker; Wilma Middendorf; Juliane Liedtke; Sandrine Witolla; Maarten van Zalk – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2023
Advances in social norm research indicated the potential benefit of utilizing social referents, who are highly connected to others and have outstanding positions in social networks, and therefore may effectively provide normative cues for other group members. Addressing the need to increase intergroup tolerance among adolescents, we developed an…

Weiss, Maren; Schmucker, Martin; Lösel, Friedrich – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2022
Most research on developmental prevention programs stems from Anglo-American countries. However, in German-speaking European countries, there is also a broad range of family-oriented programs to promote child development and prevent behavioral problems. This article presents a meta-analysis of n = 79 studies on family-based prevention that had a…

Nicoladis, Elena; Gourlay, Haylee – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2022
Adults, preschool children, and infants gesture more with their right hand than with their left hand. Since gestures and speech are related in production, it is possible that this right-hand preference reflects left-hemisphere lateralization for gestures and speech. The primary purpose of the present study was to test if children between the ages…
