Guo, Jinhong; Mrug, Sylvie; Knight, David C. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
This study examined coping strategies as mediators of the relationship between parental emotion socialization and internalizing problems in late adolescence and emerging adulthood, and whether these relationships varied by gender or ethnicity. Participants were 1,087 individuals (M[subscript age]?=?19.35 years; 50% male; 61% African American, 36%…

Strasser, Irene – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
Many well-established developmental theories concentrate on strategies of regulation and try to explain how individuals compensate for possible losses in old age. In public debates, and in laypeople's perception of aging, however, activity and productivity seem to be central concepts associated with successful aging. The present research focuses…

Mrug, Sylvie; Tindell, Courtney N.; McDonald, Kristina L. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
This study examines individual and family predictors of disrespect sensitivity in urban adolescents. Seventy-five adolescents from Southeastern USA (95% African American, 52% female) participated in two waves of a longitudinal study (mean ages 16.1 and 17.8 years, SDs?=?1.11). Youth reported on their disrespect sensitivity at both time points, as…

Lo, L. Y.; Ng, T. C.; Lin, M.; Thompson, N. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
Diversified emotional responses are generally referred as the evidence of showing categorical perception of major and minor modes. Yet it is uncertain whether the categorical performance is independent to the emotion tagging. This study therefore adopted a direct measure with the proper controlled stimuli to reexamine the categorial nature of…

Charalampous, Kyriakos; Ioannou, Myria; Georgiou, Stelios; Stavrinides, Panayiotis – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2019
The present study sought to examine the independent, hierarchical, and integrative models of multiple attachment relationships in a sample of Greek-Cypriots in middle adolescence and to test the distinct and interactive effects of these relationships on bullying involvement. A sample of Greek-Cypriot adolescents (N?=?406, 55.4% females,…

Bäck, Emma A.; Bäck, Hanna; Altermark, Niklas; Knapton, Holly – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
It is a human fundamental to desire to be valued, loved and respected--to be significant. Social exclusion induce significance loss which elicits a 'quest for significance'--the search for opportunities to re-gain significance. The present article establishes this relation in a laboratory experiment (N = 71, mean age = 28, SD = 10.42, 65% women,…

Pauwels, Lieven J. R.; Hardyns, Wim – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
In the present study, the interaction between specific measures of endorsement for extremism (e.g. endorsement for religious, left-wing or far-right extremism), thrill-seeking, and active online exposure to extremism via social media with regard to the explanation of politically and/or religiously motivated aggression is investigated. While the…

Böckler, Nils; Leuschner, Vincenz; Zick, Andreas; Scheithauer, Herbert – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
Analysis of incidents over the past ten years in Germany reveals that the boundaries between targeted attacks in schools and terrorist attacks are starting to blur. Bockler, Leuschner, Roth, Zick, and Scheithauer (2018) recently presented a set of hypotheses about similarities between the developmental pathways of school attackers and lone actor…

Perry, Gali; Wikstrom, Per-Olof H.; Roman, Gabriela D. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
The Situational Action Theory of crime submits that law-related morality, the ability to exercise self-control, and exposure to criminogenic settings are key predictors of both regular criminality and violent extremism. Indeed, morality and self-control were found to be significantly correlated with violent extremism, and especially right-wing…

Macdougall, Alex I.; van der Veen, Jaap; Feddes, Allard R.; Nickolson, Lars; Doosje, Bertjan – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
Radicalising individuals gradually accept violence as legitimate to instigate political and/or societal changes. In two studies, we investigate the beginning phase of the radicalisation process. We examine whether different trajectories into radicalism can be distinguished based on underlying needs, related to identity, injustice, sensation, or…

The main objective of this systematic review is to synthesize the empirical evidence on how the Internet and social media may, or may not, constitute spaces for exchange that can be favorable to violent extremism. Of the 5,182 studies generated from the searches, 11 studies were eligible for inclusion in this review. We considered empirical…

van de Wetering, Denis; Zick, Andreas; Mietke, Hannah – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
This article reconstructs disengagement of women from extreme right groups not theoretically as individual decision-making process, but empirically as social identity work. A thorough analysis of qualitative interviews conducted with six female and six male former right-wing extremists demonstrates how extreme right membership identities of women…

King, Sonja; Endres, Johann; Schwab, Mariann; Stemmler, Mark; Lauchs, Lora; Armborst, Andreas – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
Violent extremism research is still lacking a sound empirical basis for the validation of assessment instruments. Yet there is a growing need for these instruments to assess the dangerousness of individuals, but also the success of interventions. By analysing prisoner files of one female and 39 male inmates (average age 28.83 years, SD = 7.58)…

Losel, Friedrich; King, Sonja; Bender, Doris; Jugl, Irina – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2018
Extremism and radicalization towards violence are urgent topics in many countries. Numerous research projects are carried out, of which many focus on risk factors only. In contrast, this article contains a systematic review of the rare international research on protective factors. After screening more than 2,000 documents, we found 17 reports…
