Adolescent men's attitudes and decision making in relation to pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes: An integrative review of the literature from 2010 to 2017.

J Adolesc 2019 Feb 12;72:23-31. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Queen's University Belfast, School of Nursing and Midwifery, 97 Lisburn Rd, Belfast, BT9 7BL, UK. Electronic address:

Introduction: The review updates a previous review conducted in 2010 (Lohan et al.), summarizing the available literature on young men's attitudes and decision-making in the context of addressing two questions: (1) What are adolescent men's attitudes to adolescent pregnancy? (2) What are adolescent men's attitudes and decision-making in relation to pregnancy outcomes?

Methods: Using Whittemore and Knafl's process for conducting an integrative review, 38 studies published between 2010 and 2017 reporting on young men's attitudes and decision-making in relation to pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes were analysed.

Results: One of the most important conclusions of this review is that the findings of studies can often be contradictory. Read More

When do peers matter? The moderating role of peer support in the relationship between environmental adversity, complex trauma, and adolescent psychopathology in socially disadvantaged adolescents.

J Adolesc 2019 Feb 9;72:14-22. Epub 2019 Feb 9.

Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, KU Leuven, Tiensestraat 102 - Pobox 3720, 3000 Leuven, Belgium; Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, UCL (University College London), 1-19 Torrington Place, London WC1E 7HB, UK.

Introduction: This study examined the longitudinal associations between environmental adversity (defined in terms of exposure to violence in the neighborhood, school, and media), complex trauma (operationalized as experiences of abuse and neglect), and adolescents' internalizing and externalizing symptoms.

Methods: Using a cross-lagged panel research design, we investigated the moderating role of peer support in these relationships in a sample of 644 adolescents from a severely disadvantaged district of Lima, Peru, who were followed up in a 1-year prospective study.

Results And Conclusions: We found significant unidirectional dynamic relations, where both types of adversity were associated with higher levels of internalizing and externalizing symptoms. Read More

Examining the interplay of self-esteem, trait-emotional intelligence, and age with depression across adolescence.

J Adolesc 2019 Feb 7;71:162-166. Epub 2019 Feb 7.

Department of Sociology, Psychology, and Social Work, The University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica.

Introduction: While there has been much empirical work demonstrating the deleterious effects of low self-esteem on adolescent depression, very little of this has been conducted in low-to middle-income countries. Furthermore, one's trait-emotional intelligence (TEI) has rarely been examined in interaction with self-esteem to predict adolescent depression. To address these gaps, the current brief report examined the interacting effects of TEI on the associations of self-esteem and depressive symptoms. Read More

Department of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King's College London, De Crespigny Park, London SE5 8AF, UK; School of Psychology, Pevensey Building, University of Sussex, Falmer, Brighton BN1 9QH, UK.

Introduction: Schools may provide a convenient intervention setting for young people with mental health problems generally, as well as for those who are unwilling or unable to access traditional clinic-based mental health services. However, few studies focus on older adolescents, or those from ethnic minority groups. This study aims to assess the feasibility of a brief school-based psychological intervention for self-referred adolescents aged 16-19 years. Read More

Interaction effect of familism and socioeconomic status on academic outcomes of adolescent children of Latino immigrant families.

J Adolesc 2019 Feb 29;71:138-149. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Department of Human Development, California State University San Marcos, CA, USA.

Introduction: Previous research has shown inconsistent findings of the effect of familism on academic outcomes among adolescents from Latino immigrant families. Guided by social capital theory and the concept of gendered familism, the current study examined differential effects of family obligation and family cohesion as subcomponents separately. This study also investigated the moderating effect of familial SES on the association of each component of familism and academic outcomes by gender. Read More

Further insight into adolescent personal identity statuses: Differences based on self-esteem, family climate, and family communication.

J Adolesc 2019 Feb 22;71:99-109. Epub 2019 Jan 22.

FAmily and DevelOpment Research Center (FADO), Institute of Psychology, University of Lausanne, Switzerland.

Introduction: During adolescence, youngsters are faced with the challenging task of forming an identity. This process can be either supported or hindered by adolescents' family context. The present study used a six-process model of personal identity including the five identity processes described by the dual-cycle model of identity (exploration in breadth, commitment making, exploration in depth, identification with commitment, and ruminative exploration) as well as a sixth identity process of reconsideration of commitment, commonly described in the three-factor model of identity.

Institute of Psychology, Unit of Developmental and Educational Psychology, Leiden University, Wassenaarseweg 52, 2333 AK, Leiden, the Netherlands.

Introduction: Low emotional clarity, that is, problems in understanding and identifying one's own emotions, is generally seen as related to depression. Most empirical studies on this topic focused on the link between low levels of emotional clarity predicting depression problems, fewer studies on depression symptoms predicting low emotional clarity. All studies were restricted to unidirectional associations. Read More

Department of Physiology, College of Medicine, King Saud University and King Khalid University Hospital, P.O Box 2925, Riyadh, 11461, Saudi Arabia. Electronic address:

Puberty is a physiological event involving the attainment of reproductive capability and complete development of sexual and physical organs. Changing from childhood to adulthood is a complex process and is tightly controlled by interconnection pathways at the level of the hypothalamus which can be influenced by environmental, psychosocial, and endocrine factors. Although various mechanisms underlying the onset of normal puberty have been investigated in humans and animals, the exact molecular mechanisms thereof remain unclear. Read More

Katsuya Oi

J Adolesc 2019 Feb 4;71:50-62. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Department of Sociology, Northern Arizona University, United States. Electronic address:

Introduction: Non-cognitive skills, particularly in terms of risk-aversion, future-orientation, and conscientiousness, grow with age, and this phenomenon is known as personality maturation. However, significant variability in maturation among individuals exists. The technology of cognitive/non-cognitive skill formation suggests that the growth of non-cognitive skills is contingent on cognitive skills or human capital in general. Read More

Department of Psychology, 38 Dineen Drive, Keirstead Hall, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, New Brunswick, E3B 5A3, Canada. Electronic address:

Introduction: Individuals often develop expectations prior to their initial sexual experiences based on external messages from peers and the broader culture. According to sexual script theory (Simon & Gagnon, 1986), these expectations form schemas about how an initial sexual experience should occur. When reality deviates from these schemas, dissatisfaction can occur (McCormick, 1987). Read More

Evaluating school and peer protective factors in the effects of interparental conflict on adolescent threat appraisals and self-efficacy.

J Adolesc 2019 Feb 26;71:28-37. Epub 2018 Dec 26.

Human Development and Family Studies, The Pennsylvania State University, USA; Prevention Research Center, The Pennsylvania State University, USA.

Introduction: Recent work has sought to understand how family-specific risk, such as exposure to interparental conflict, may generalize to developmentally-salient processes in adolescence. A cascade model has been identified in which conflict-specific threat appraisals may erode adolescents' self-efficacy over time, and in turn, undermine their psychological well-being. The goal of this study was to integrate success in the school and peer contexts as potential contextual protective factors that may mitigate the effects of interparental conflict on self-efficacy.

Department of Developmental Psychology and Socialization, University of Padova, Italy. Electronic address:

Introduction: Previous research suggests that supportive parenting is positively related to adolescents' academic and psychological functioning. However, most extant research has focused on parenting styles observed in Western countries, whereas less is known about the role of culturally specific parenting dimensions in Eastern countries such as China. The purpose of this study was to examine the association between parental guan and school adjustment in Mainland Chinese early adolescents, postulating moderation by interdependent self-construal (ISC).

Indicators of positive youth development can be maladaptive: The example case of caring.

J Adolesc 2019 Feb 21;71:1-9. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

Human Development and Family Studies, Oregon State University, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: Research on positive youth development typically takes a more-is-better approach in which higher scores on measures of positive youth development indicate better outcomes. We question the validity of this assumption and describe how an imbalance among the Five Cs of Positive Youth Development can lead to a situation where "more" is actually "less." We then provide an empirical illustration using cross-sectional data. Read More

Department of Public Health Sciences, Stockholm University, SE-106 91, Stockholm, Sweden. Electronic address:

Introduction: Future orientation (FO) refers to individuals' beliefs and feelings about their future. Earlier research has primarily investigated correlates of FO at the individual and family level, but it seems likely that FO is also shaped by other central agents or institutions, such as the school. Earlier studies have found positive associations between "school effectiveness" and student performance, and negative associations in relation to e. Read More

University of Liverpool, United Kingdom. Electronic address:

Introduction: Adolescence is a period of intense physical, biological, and psychological change, and this can result in feelings of stress. We examined the development of stress in early adolescence, and further, how that development impacted on both alcohol-use behaviours and utilisation of government-provided services.

Methods: We used a shortened, 24-item version of the Adolescent Stress Questionnaire (ASQ) to account for stress, and applied latent transition analysis to examine longitudinal change. Read More

Introduction: Sexual minority girls (SMGs) may be at high risk for substance use partially due to anti-gay discrimination. Low levels of parent-child communication and parental knowledge may contribute to this risk. This study seeks to identify parent-child communication and parental knowledge trajectories, determine the likelihood of SMGs following these trajectories, and describe the relationships between these trajectories, sexual orientation, and substance use.

J Adolesc 2018 Dec 10;69:130-139. Epub 2018 Oct 10.

Medical School, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.

Introduction: Depression rises significantly in adolescence, with females reporting twice the prevalence of males into adulthood. In accordance with cognitive vulnerability theories, eating and weight-related disturbances have been implicated in this increase, but a broader assessment of body image constructs within this framework is needed.

Methods: The current prospective study examined body importance, body dissatisfaction, and body change strategies to lose weight and increase muscularity as predictors of depressive symptoms over one year in N = 298 adolescents in Canberra, Australia (at Time 2, the sample comprised n = 161 female adolescents, M = 15.

Parental drinking as context for parental socialization of adolescent alcohol use.

J Adolesc 2018 Dec 13;69:22-32. Epub 2018 Sep 13.

Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies, Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences, Brown University School of Public Health, Box G-S121-4, Providence, RI, 02912, USA.

Introduction: While alcohol-specific parenting practices have demonstrated unique effects on adolescent substance use, their efficacy in the context of parental drinking levels has not been studied. This study assessed the influence of three alcohol-specific parenting practices (rules, punishment, communication) on adolescent alcohol use, and the degree to which those associations varied by parents' own drinking.

Methods: We conducted logistic regression analyses among US adolescents (N = 1023; 52% female; 12% Hispanic; 76% Caucasian, 5% Black, 8% mixed race, 11% other race/ethnicity; mean age at enrollment = 12. Read More
