Abstract


  • This research will determine the impact of a comprehensive set of individual difference factors on the psychological, physical, and academic/employment success of young people as they prepare to leave school and enter emerging adulthood. Our sample comprises around 850 high school students. Using multi-wave data, we will examine the effects of our predictor variables on the developmental trajectories of our outcome measures after eight years. Our research will allow us to identify troubled and physically at-risk individuals early in the developmental stream and make informed suggestions regarding interventions
