A longitudinal study into the development of personal vulnerabilities and well-being in adolescence

Abstract


  • Why are some adolescents at risk for poor mental health and poor social adjustment? We seek funding for the second, third, and fourth wave of a multi-state longitudinal study. The study will identify the temperamental and environmental variables that predict the development of character in adolescence and, in turn, the role that developing character plays in promoting social, emotional, and productive well-being. The study is unique in its comprehensiveness and its assessment of adolescents at multiple levels (e.g., social environment, individual differences, and biological factors). This research will identify the risk factors for declining adolescent well-being and behavioural adjustment.
