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…

Males, Mike A.; Brown, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2014

Kins, Evie; De Mol, Jan; Beyers, Wim – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2014
In today's Western societies, the transition to adulthood is prolonged, creating a separate developmental phase between adolescence and adulthood referred to as "emerging adulthood".

Males, Mike A.; Brown, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Adolescent Research, 2014
Respondents, in "A Mistaken Account of the Age-Crime Curve: Response to Males and Brown," dispute our finding that virtually all of the discrepancy in violent crime rates between adolescents/emerging adults versus older adults is explained not by young age per se but by higher poverty levels among the young. Our rejoinder argues that…

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…
