Our study describes the experiences of gay, bisexual, and queer (GBQ)-identifying adolescent males with parent-child sex communication. We…

Laughland-Booÿ, Jacqueline; Skrbiš, Zlatko; Newcombe, Peter – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2018
In many industrialized countries, the transition into adulthood has become prolonged and complex. The consequence is that the process of identity formation within various life domains is often being delayed. This study applies a qualitative longitudinal research strategy to track the experiences of 28 young Australians as they undergo the process…

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…

Olmstead, Spencer B.; Conrad, Kathryn A.; Anders, Kristin M. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2018
Our study was guided by a developmental lens (emerging adulthood) and the theory of symbolic interaction as we attended to the meanings and definitions that contextualize expectations for engaging in hookups while attending college. Using a directed approach to qualitative content analysis, we examined first semester college men's and women's (N =…

Arbeit, Miriam R.; Hershberg, Rachel M.; Johnson, Sara K.; Lerner, Jacqueline V.; Lerner, Richard M. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2017
For young men, the transition to adulthood may be a time of heightened adherence to traditional gender roles and norms of masculinity. However, recent research with young men in gender-specific contexts has indicated that some contexts support a construction of masculinity that is more inclusive. Through a theoretical thematic analysis of…

Deutsch, Nancy L.; Reitz-Krueger, Cristina L.; Henneberger, Angela K.; Futch Ehrlich, Valerie A.; Lawrence, Edith C. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2017

This article reports findings from a qualitative study of the Young Women Leaders Program (YWLP), a combined group and one-on-one mentoring program for early adolescent girls. Protégés (n = 113) were interviewed post-program about changes they made as a result of…

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…

Gowen, L. Kris; Catania, Joseph A.; Dolcini, M. Margaret; Harper, Gary W. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2014
Although interpersonal respect is considered an important quality in successful romantic relationships, limited attention has been paid to this concept. We examined the meaning of respect in romantic relationships as conceptualized by low-income, sexually active, heterosexually identified, African American adolescents aged 15 to 17 (N = 50).…

Halpern-Meekin, Sarah; Manning, Wendy D.; Giordano, Peggy C.; Longmore, Monica A. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2013
We build on the emerging adulthood literature to examine two forms of relationship instability, reconciliations and sex with an ex; we term these forms of relationship churning. Analyzing recent data on emerging adult daters and cohabitors (n = 792), we find that nearly half report a reconciliation (a breakup followed by reunion) and over half of…

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…
