Yu, Mark Vincent B.; Johnson, Haley E.; Deutsch, Nancy L.; Varga, Shannon M. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2018
Interpersonal relationships during adolescence can be powerful avenues for personal development. As school is a universal context for youth, positive teacher-student relationships (TSRs) are one potential source for such developmentally promotive relationships. Unfortunately, research has shown a decline in the quality of teacher-student…

Gutiérrez, Vanessa; Larson, Reed W.; Raffaelli, Marcela; Fernandez, Mariela; Guzman, Sandy – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2017
Incidents in which program leaders confront issues of culture and race occur regularly in many youth programs. These incidents are important because they reflect powerful dimensions of youth's lived experience and bring issues of injustice and program inclusiveness to the fore. This study examined these culture-related incidents and how leaders…

Price, Chara D.; Simpkins, Sandra D.; Menjívar, Cecilia – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2017
Families are theorized to influence adolescents' participation in skill-based after-school activities, but research has focused on the role of parents while neglecting the role of siblings. Siblings might be especially critical for Mexican-origin youth, the fastest growing youth population in the United States, due to a high value of family as…

The development of civically engaged citizens is vital for democratic societies.

Organized activities have been found to provide positive experiences for Latino adolescents to develop confidence and learn critical life skills; however, these programs are sometimes a context where youth encounter negative experiences related to ethnic/racial microaggressions (ERMs). This qualitative study explores the types of ERMs that…

Snapp, Shannon D.; Hoenig, Jennifer M.; Fields, Amanda; Russell, Stephen T. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2015
Emerging evidence suggests that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth experience disparate treatment in schools that may result in criminal sanctions. In an effort to understand the pathways that push youth out of schools, we conducted focus groups with youth (n = 31) from Arizona, California, and Georgia, and…

Kuvalanka, Katherine A.; Leslie, Leigh A.; Radina, Rachel – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2014
Little is known about how youth with LGB (lesbian, gay, and bisexual) parents experience various forms of sexual stigma (i.e., homophobia and heterosexism). Previous studies have focused primarily on frequency of teasing and harassment; therefore, much less is known about how indirect and institutional types of sexual stigma play out in the lives…

Moran, Seana; Bundick, Matthew J.; Malin, Heather; Reilly, Timothy S. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2013
Prior studies have found that youth reporting a general sense that "I have a purpose" also describe having social supports that enhance thriving. This study links "specific" social supports to "specific" purposes described by youth. We examined whether developmental level, social-structural supports of gender and…

Few studies examine how the macro context shapes ethnic or racial identity development during early adolescence.

Glasser, Howard M. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2012
Although middle school is a critical time in adolescents' development, little is known about how that development is affected by public single-sex classes even though recent federal policy decisions have led more schools to provide these offerings. This case study used ethnographic methods to explore ways teachers, students, and courses in one…
