  • Future Fellowships

Abstract


  • Why are some adolescents at risk for poor mental health, physical health, and social adjustment? This application seeks support for collecting four years of data (Waves 2-5) 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 using measures taken from different disciplines (e.g., social, education, biology ). This research will identify the risk factors for declining adolescent well-being and behavioural adjustment.
