  • Longitudinal Health Outcomes and Treatment Utilization Among Emerging,
           Early-Mid, and Older Rural Adults Using Stimulants
    • Abstract: There is limited knowledge about age-related differences in health outcomes and treatment utilization among rural stimulant users. The current study examined physical health, mental health, and treatment utilization (hospital, mental health, and substance use care) among 710 stimulant users living in rural areas of the United States. Generalized estimating equations (GEE) were used to examine associations between age and physical health, mental health, and treatment utilization over a 3-year period. Analyses controlled for participants’ gender, race, and education. To capture age-related differences, participants were grouped into emerging adults (18–25 years old, n = 223), early-mid adults (26–44 years old; n = 384), and older adults (45–61 years old; n = 103). At baseline, older stimulant users were in significantly poorer health even though they had significantly fewer substance use problems than emerging adult users. GEE models indicated that substance use outcomes improved for all participants over the course of the study but other outcomes remained stable. Older stimulant users continued to have worse physical health and mental health, even though they had fewer substance use problems, than the other age groups. Older adults also used more hospital and mental health services than the other age groups. White participants tended to be at higher risk for negative outcomes than nonwhite participants. We conclude that rural older adults who use stimulants have poor health despite having milder substance use problems and using more health care resources, and need targeted intervention to improve health outcomes.

  • Generating Identity Capital from Family Capital and Personal Agency: A
           Mediation Analysis
    • Abstract: This study focused on the mechanism in which family capital—human capital, financial capital, and social capital—could be mobilized in the creation of the identity capital of young people during their transition to adulthood. A total of 1153 participants in Shanghai, China, (mean age = 20.90, SD = 1.44) completed a standardized questionnaire. The study found that young people in this sample generally had a moderate level of identity capital. A higher level of family social capital was associated with a higher level of identity capital, and was the strongest predictor among all the predictor variables. Family social capital also played a significant role in mediating the effects of family human capital and financial capital on the identity capital of young people. Family human capital predicted an increased identity capital, both directly and indirectly, through its positive effects on family social capital, whereas family financial capital only showed an indirect effect on identity capital. Unexpectedly, of the three forms of family capital, only social capital was positively associated with self-efficacy. This suggested that family human capital and financial capital can be translated into self-efficacy only through the mediation of family social capital. Ultimately, the mediation model was established. Implications of these present findings for theory, practice, and policy were discussed.

  • The Association Between Family Structure and Subjective Well-Being Among
           Emerging Adults in China: Examining the Sequential Mediation Effects of
           Maternal Attachment, Peer Attachment, and Self-Efficacy
    • Abstract: Previous research has established the relation between intact family structure and children’s adjustment and subjective well-being. However, the mechanism through which family structure was associated with children’s subjective well-being remained understudied. The current research investigated the sequential mediation effects of maternal attachment, peer attachment and self-efficacy on the relationship between family structure and emerging adults’ subjective well-being. The current sample included 538 college students from a Southeastern province in China, including 193 males and 345 females, with the average age of 19.61 (SD = 1.36). Those from intact families (n = 425, 79%) reported higher levels of subjective well-being than their counterparts from non-intact families (n = 113, 21%). In addition, non-intact family structure was associated with lower levels of maternal attachment, lower levels of peer attachment and general self-efficacy, which in turn was associated with lower levels of subjective well-being. The current findings added to the literature regarding the important role of intact family structure on emerging adults’ subjective well-being. Future prevention and intervention efforts might need to re-establish the security in maternal and peer attachment among youth from non-intact families in order to promote better adjustment and subjective well-being.

  • What is the Good Life' A Master Narrative Approach to the Study of
           Morals and Values in American Emerging Adults
    • Abstract: This study examines the ways in which emerging adults in the United States narratively constructed identities in relation to their conceptions of the good life. What does it mean to be a good person' Am I living a good life' How can I lead a better life' All of these variations of the Who-am-I question––in relation to Who-I-should-be and Who-I-want-to-be––were investigated in this qualitative study. In-depth, life-story interviews (N = 24) were conducted with individuals between the ages of 18 and 29 across the U.S. The findings of a discursive thematic analysis indicate that emerging adults highly value subjectivity, independence, and interdependence when considering what makes a person and a life good. More than any one particular belief system, emerging adults expressed the values of individualism, idiosyncrasy, pluralism, and relativism when considering the features of a good life. They placed particular importance on deciding these beliefs on their own, and that there is not one answer to the question of what makes a life good. Results indicate that these values are fundamental to the master narrative of emerging adulthood in the U.S.

  • Relational Competence in Emerging Adult Adoptees: Conceptualizing
           Competence in Close Relationships
    • Abstract: Little research has focused on the positive adjustment of emerging adult adoptees (Palacios and Brodzinsky in Int J Behav Dev 34:270–284, 2010). Given the developmental context of emerging adulthood (Arnett in Am Psychol 55:469–482, 2000), it is important to select an indicator of adjustment that reflects the associated ambiguity. The present study aims to provide empirical support for the construct of relational competence, or competence in one’s closest relationship regardless of relationship type (i.e., romantic vs. nonromantic) among emerging adult adoptees. Participants included 162 adoptees who had been adopted before the age of one in the United States through private domestic adoption in to same-race families. Relational competence was measured by adapting a measure of romantic competence in emerging adulthood (Shulman et al. in J Adolesc 34:397–406, 2011). Indicators of relational competence were coded from interviews in which participants discussed their self-identified closest relationship (White et al. in J Personality Soc Psychol 50:152–162, 1986). Confirmatory factor analyses showed that the proposed model of relational competence was a good fit to the data and was invariant across relationship type and gender. No differences in relational competence scores were found by relationship type or by gender (all p’s > .552). Relational competence was positively associated with adaptive functioning (β = 0.325, p = .006) and negatively associated with internalizing (β = − 0.246, p = .035) and externalizing behavior (β = − 0.347, p = .003).

  • A Prediction Model for Separation Anxiety: The Role of Attachment Styles
           and Internalizing Symptoms in Italian Young Adults
    • Abstract: Following recent literature, which stresses the importance of broadening the conceptualization of mental functioning in youth, this paper investigated the relations between indicators of attachment styles, internalizing symptoms, and separation anxiety in 379 non-referred Italian university students, as captured by the relationship questionnaire, the experiences in close relationships-revised, the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI), and the adult separation anxiety-27. Psychometric properties of all measures were scrutinized and a confirmatory factor analysis was conducted to support the soundness of a one-factor model representing indicators of all PAI internalizing symptoms: Anxiety, Anxiety-related disorders, Depression, Somatization, and Suicidal ideation. Then, a multivariate analysis was performed in order to test a model of relation linking attachment styles, internalizing symptoms, and separation anxiety scores. Results supported the mediation role of Internalizing symptoms in the association between preoccupied attachment and separation anxiety scores. Preoccupied attachment towards the romantic partner, as compared to attachment towards family and friends, played a more relevant role in predicting internalizing symptoms and separation anxiety scores. Findings corroborate the combined use of the over-mentioned indicators as a screening battery for the dimensional assessment of the interplay among these variables in young adults. Implications and limitations of the study are presented and discussed.

  • Growing by Letting Go: Nonattachment and Mindfulness as Qualities of
           Advanced Psychological Development
    • Abstract: Psychological development continues throughout adulthood, with some individuals reaching advanced levels of adult psychological development. A focus of the present study was to investigate the Buddhist construct of nonattachment in relation to three elements of advanced psychological development: wisdom, self-actualisation and self-transcendence. The possibility that nonattachment mediates the relationship of mindfulness to these aspects of optimal psychological development was also investigated. Results from 348 university students supported expectations that nonattachment was positively related to wisdom, self-actualisation and self-transcendence and confirmed similar positive relationships for mindfulness. In addition, nonattachment was found to act as a partial mediator of mindfulness for all three aspects of advanced adult psychological development. Interestingly, an alternate mediational pathway was discovered as mindfulness was shown to mediate the relationship of nonattachment to measures of advanced psychological development. The results have implications for understanding the different pathways towards developing wisdom, self-actualisation and self-transcendence and provide insight into the possible mechanisms of mindfulness and nonattachment that help to explain their positive impact.

  • The Experiences of Ageing Parents of Young Adults with Autism Spectrum
           Disorders (ASD)
    • Abstract: Global improvements in health care have resulted in improved longevity for the general population, including persons with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Increasingly, many parents are living with and providing care for their young adults with ASD. Little, however, is known about the experiences of ageing parents of young adults with ASD, particularly in developing countries like Ghana. This study explored the unique experiences of nine ageing parents and their young adults with ASD using semi-structured interviews. Data were analysed using the thematic analysis approach. Findings from the analysis of their responses revealed five themes: psychological exhaustion, future uncertainties, planning for the future, isolation and stigmatization and social support. Findings of this study serve to extend the developmental perspective of caring for caregivers and adult persons with ASD, with implications for designing interventions for such population in developing regions.

  • The Role of Self-Concepts in Emerging Adult Depression: A Systematic
           Research Synthesis
    • Abstract: Emerging adults have the highest rates of depression compared to other age groups, yet effective, developmentally appropriate interventions are scarce. A growing body of research suggests an important link exists between self-concepts and depression. To contribute to the dialogue regarding emerging adult depression, theory, and potential points of intervention, a systematic research synthesis (SRS) on the state of knowledge of the relationship between self-concepts (self-esteem, self-efficacy, locus of control, and mastery) and emerging adult depression was conducted using the vulnerability and stress process models. Three primary findings emerged: a greater breadth of work has examined self-esteem and has provided support for its relationship with depression; research on self-efficacy, mastery, and locus of control is minimal with mixed results; and self-concepts work in differential ways to impact depression. Preliminary evidence suggests interpersonal stressors have a contributing role in the relationship between self-concepts and depression. Results identify new avenues of interventions to pursue for a population at risk for depression and in need of developmentally appropriate treatment options.

  • Personality Predictors of Midlife Generativity: A Longitudinal Study
    • Abstract: The study aims to broaden the knowledge of the relationship between personality and generativity. The study tests personality predictors of generativity on the basis of longitudinal data and includes not only personality traits but also self-concept variables while examining five of the seven components of generativity within the McAdams and de St. Aubin model. The sample consists of 150 participants from two longitudinal studies (63 men, 87 women; mean age 54.82). Generativity (concern, belief in the species, commitment, action, and narration measured by different methods) was assessed in the last wave of the study, personality traits (measured by NEO-FFI), and self-concept variables (Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, Generalized Self-Efficacy Scale, Self-Concept Clarity Scale) were assessed in previous two stages of the study (at the age of 50 and 40 of the participants). Regression analysis was used to identify unique relationships between variables. From the longitudinal point of view, extraversion is the main predictive factor of later generativity, and openness to experience also contributes to the prediction of generativity. Self-concept variables are not as strong predictors of generativity as personality traits. The only association between variables of self-concept and generativity was found between self-concept clarity and belief in the species.

  • Personality Traits and Attachment Orientations: Longitudinal Associations
           Around the Event of Childbirth
    • Abstract: The current study examined the longitudinal associations of the Big Five personality traits (i.e., Neuroticism, Extraversion, Agreeableness, Openness to Experience, and Conscientiousness) with attachment orientations (i.e., Anxiety and Avoidance) around the event of childbirth. For this purpose, the authors conducted a three-wave longitudinal research program (second prepartum trimester, 6 months postpartum, and 1 year postpartum) using cross-lagged models on 204 parental couples. The results showed that (a) Neuroticism was longitudinally associated with Anxiety and (b) Extraversion was associated within time points with Avoidance.

  • A Study on Body Image, Sexual Satisfaction, and Marital Adjustment in
           Middle-Aged Married Women
    • Abstract: The present study was an effort to study body image, sexual satisfaction, and marital adjustment in middle-aged married women. Three hundred and thirty middle-aged women were selected out of the women attending consultation centers in Gorgan, Iran, and they were asked to complete Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS), the Body Self-image Questionnaire, and the Persian language modified version of SQOL. Data analyses were conducted via descriptive statistics, t tests, one-way analysis of variance, Pearson’s correlation coefficients, and stepwise multiple regression. The results revealed that sexual satisfaction, body image, and marital adjustment were significantly different in terms of demographic (i.e., age, educational level, duration of marriage, living arrangement, occupation, and monthly income) and health factors (i.e., disease, exercise, frequency of sexual intercourse with spouse, and sleeping problem) excluding duration of marriage and sleeping problem for marital adjustment. It was also shown that sexual satisfaction, body image, and marital adjustment were positively and significantly correlated. Stepwise multiple regression analysis results also indicated the influencing factors on each of the variables.

  • Emotional Intelligence Profiles in College Students and Their Fathers’
           and Mothers’ Parenting Practices
    • Abstract: The present study has two objectives: first, to analyze whether the dimensions that make up emotional intelligence (attention, clarity, and repair) give rise to different profiles of university students, and secondly, to determine whether these different profiles are differentially associated with the parenting practices that students report with regard to their fathers and mothers. Results obtained indicate the existence of different profiles of college students. The profile that corresponds to adequate emotional skills presents a lower score in attention, but higher scores in clarity, and especially in mood repair. The other two profiles are inadequate, in the first case because a higher score in emotional attention is accompanied by low scores in mood repair, and in the second case because low scores are presented in all three dimensions. Likewise, we verified the existence of significant differences in the educational practices of parents, the adequate profile is characterized by greater use of parenting dimensions considered to be positive, and at the same time, lower scores on dimensions considered to be negative. One of the dysfunctional profiles is associated with higher scores in positive practices, and is also associated with higher scores in practices considered to produce a negative effect. The second dysfunctional profile is associated with higher scores on the dimensions considered to be negative and lower scores on positive dimensions.

  • Advancing Ego Development in Adulthood Through Study of the Enneagram
           System of Personality
    • Abstract: A rapidly growing number of working professionals, academic communities, and businesses have applied the Enneagram personality system of nine types to enhance psychological growth in their personal and professional lives. However, there are no existing studies that measure the effects of the application of Enneagram training programs to promote ego development. This study examined if ego development took place among individuals enrolled in Enneagram training programs in the Narrative Tradition. Two groups of participants (N = 122) were assessed using the Washington University Sentence Completion Test (WUSCT) at baseline (pretest) before the training began and then again 18 months later (posttest); one of the groups participated in Enneagram Intensive training programs (n = 73) and the other group participated in introductory Enneagram trainings (n = 49). Data revealed an advancement in ego development among some of the participants who received at least 40–50 h of training. The findings suggest that Enneagram Intensive trainings may be beneficial for promoting psychological growth and ego development. Clinical applications and future research directions are discussed.

  • Happily Stressed: The Complexity of Well-Being in Midlife
    • Abstract: Previous studies provided mixed findings of well-being in midlife, so the present study sought to add new dimensions to this area of research by investigating diverse aspects of midlife well-being, including sources of enjoyment and stress. In a national sample of 834 Americans ages 40–60, overall well-being was high, and most participants agreed that their current time of life is “fun and exciting” (71%), a time of freedom (71%), and a time when “anything is possible” (77%). They also regarded themselves as being in a time of life for focusing on themselves (56%) and “finding out who I really am” (55%). However, 65% assessed this time of their lives as stressful (65%), and many agreed that they often feel anxious (39%), depressed (25%), or that “my life is not going well” (27%). Regression analyses revealed no notable variations in well-being by gender, ethnicity, educational attainment, work status, or relationship status. In sum, among Americans in midlife, well-being is generally high even as it coexists with stress and other mental health challenges.

  • Valuing Risk: Endorsed Risk Activities and Motives Across Adulthood
    • Authors: Russell D. Ravert; Lindsey M. Murphy; M. Brent Donnellan
      Abstract: Abstract This study used content analysis of survey responses to help understand attitudes regarding taking risks across the adult lifespan. A sample of 842 U.S. adults ages 18–92 were asked to report their personal philosophy of taking risks, and what risks they felt people their age should take more often. Thematic categories were identified to classify the range of risk activities and explicit motives for taking risks. Responses were coded, and frequencies of those risk activities and motives were compared between young adults (ages 18–29), middle adults (30–59), and older adults (60+). Logistic regression was used to identify linear and curvilinear trends. Interpreting results within a lifespan developmental task framework, we concluded that risk taking may be valued as a way to create opportunities during young adulthood, a means to capitalize on those opportunities in middle adulthood, and as a strategy for managing resources and well-being in late adulthood.

  • The Relationships Among Aging Stereotypes, Aging Anxiety, Social Support,
           Religiosity, and Expected Health Among Colombians
    • Authors: Luisa Fernanda Ramírez; Ximena Palacios-Espinosa; Christina Dyar; Ashley Lytle; Sheri R. Levy
      Abstract: Abstract The population of older adults is rapidly increasing throughout the world, particularly in Latin American countries. This increase makes it imperative to examine psychosocial perceptions and expectations of aging among these populations, which to date have received little research attention. This study aims to test two models of the associations among psychosocial perceptions, expectations of aging, and religiosity among 544 individuals (52.4% female) whose age ranged from 18 to 59 years (M = 31.7) living in Bogota, Colombia. The first model examines associations among psychosocial perceptions and psychosocial aging outcomes, while the second examines associations between these constructs and religiosity. The first model indicates that three major psychosocial predictors (social support, positive and negative aging stereotypes) are uniquely associated with three psychosocial aging outcomes (expected aging-related support, aging anxiety, expected health). The second model indicates that higher religiosity is associated with higher perceived current social support and expected aging-related support, greater endorsement of positive aging stereotypes, and lower reported aging anxiety. Results extend the literature on psychosocial perceptions and expectations of aging to Colombia and suggest that religiosity may play an important role in shaping psychosocial expectations and perceptions of aging in Colombia.

  • Adult Attachment and Psychological Well-Being: The Mediating Role of
           Personality
    • Authors: Rosario J. Marrero-Quevedo; Pedro J. Blanco-Hernández; Juan A. Hernández-Cabrera
      Abstract: Abstract The main aim of the current study was to identify the links between attachment and psychological well-being (PWB) and analyze the personality characteristics that mediated these relationships. The sample was made up of 1403 adults (mean age 37.2 years). The results indicated positive correlations between secure attachment and PWB dimensions, whereas avoidant and anxious attachment were negatively associated with PWB. Significant relationships were found between attachment orientations and different Big Five personality traits, particularly neuroticism. Self-esteem also showed strong links with attachment orientations. Dominance analyses demonstrated that certain personality traits—neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and self-esteem—had a greater relative importance than attachment orientations for different PWB dimensions. The greatest contribution of attachment was to positive relations with others. The results of mediation analyses showed direct effects of attachment orientations on PWB dimensions, as well as indirect effects through personality characteristics. Self-esteem was an important mediator in all relationships between attachment and PWB. These findings could have significant practical implications in promoting well-being.

  • Adult Attachment, Role Balance, and Depressive Symptoms in Emerging
           Adulthood
    • Authors: Jennifer L. Bishop; Jerika C. Norona; Patricia N. E. Roberson; Deborah P. Welsh; Sara K. McCurry
      Abstract: Abstract Given the large body of evidence linking attachment insecurity to psychological distress (e.g., depression) in the transition from adolescence to emerging adulthood and across the lifespan, there is a need to better understand how attachment dimensions (e.g., anxious, avoidant) influence depressive symptoms during this developmental period. Based on limited findings that difficulties with role balance may uniquely contribute to depression among college students (Lopez and Fons-Scheyd in J Coll Couns 11:133–147, 2008; Marks and McDermid in J Marriage Family 58:417–432, 1996) and may be associated with individual factors such as internal working models of attachment, this study tested the indirect effects of anxious and avoidant attachment on depression through role balance using a college student sample (n = 299). Structural equation modeling indicated that role balance partially mediated the relationship between attachment anxiety and depression. Results of this study suggest that difficulty in balancing individual (i.e., autonomy-focused) and relational (i.e., intimacy-focused) role commitments might help to explain depressive symptoms above and beyond insecure attachment for anxiously attached emerging adults and serve as a mechanism by which anxious attachment influences depressive symptoms during this developmental period. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.

  • Promoting Gratitude and Positive Feelings About Learning Among Young
           Adults
    • Authors: John Mark Froiland
      Abstract: Abstract Universities are increasingly offering positive psychology courses; however, very few studies have been conducted to see if they enhance positive psychology outcomes for students. This study, conducted at a Western university in the U.S., examined the effects of a semester long positive psychology course on 26 undergraduate students’ gratitude and emotions toward studying. The course included broad aspects of positive psychology, such as gratitude, mindfulness, autonomy supportive communication, intrinsic life goals, intrinsic learning goals, acts of kindness, and identifying strengths. Using a retrospective pretest-posttest design, paired sample t tests revealed that students improved significantly on both gratitude and homework feelings. The effect size (Cohen’s d) for homework feelings was 1.03, indicating that students experienced a strong improvement in positive emotions toward studying and homework. The effect size for gratitude was .76, indicating a moderate to large positive effect on thankfulness. Percentage of classes attended was moderately positively associated with pre- to post-course improvement in gratitude and emotions, indicating that students with higher attendance were more likely to experience greater personal growth. Students of minority background (e.g., Latino) improved more than European American students on gratitude, whereas they improved equally well on positive emotions. Implications for universities, professors, and others interested in the positive psychological development of young adults are discussed.
