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…

Bowers, Jill R.; Rosch, David M.; Collier, Daniel A. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2016
Leadership and developmental scholars have highlighted the need to enhance youth leadership skills.

Rogers, Leoandra Onnie; Way, Niobe – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2016
Adolescents form their identities by both accommodating (endorsing) and resisting (challenging) cultural stereotypes. Most research on Black males focuses on how they accommodate to negative stereotypes (e.g., delinquency, aggression), but a growing literature emphasizes how youth resist stereotypes. Semi-structured interviews were analyzed to…

Adachi, Paul J. C.; Willoughby, Teena – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2013
We argue that video game play may meet Larson's (2000) criteria for fostering initiative in youth, and thus, may be related to positive outcomes such as flow, cooperation, problem solving, and reduced in-group bias. However, developmental and social psychologists examining adolescent video game use have focused heavily on how video games are…

Ramirez, Michael – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2013
Using interview data from 38 musicians, this study examines the ways in which the transition to adulthood is complicated by aspirations to a nonstandard line of work.

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…

Having a noble purpose in life is an important component of positive youth development; however, little is known about how noble purposes develop over time. Therefore, using three waves of interviews over a 5-year period with 9 adolescents (N = 9) who demonstrated intense commitments to various noble purposes, the present study developed a…

Payne, Monica A. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2012
Stanley Hall's (1904) description of adolescence as a time "suggestive of some ancient period of storm and stress when old moorings were broken and a higher level attained" is arguably one of developmental psychology's most vivid and powerful metaphors. Its relatively insignificant contribution to Hall's treatise (Arnett, 2006), the early demise…

This qualitative study examined a context, a 2-week adventure recreation program for youth, quantitatively shown in previous research to have…
