  • Multilevel Models and Multidisciplinary Perspectives: Bringing Peer
           Relations Research Into the Future

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Nearly every university course in developmental psychology starts with the compelling claim that development needs to be studied from an ecological perspective. Bronfenbrenner’s famous doughnutlike figure is brought out and praised as the essential model for considering and studying development (Bronfenbrenner, 1979; see Figure 1). Instructors note that this approach is not only important but necessary. Students, keen to understand the principles and processes of human development, resonate to this complexity. Worldlier than prior generations, current students look forward to learning how development is contextually situated. They feel inspired by this concern with contextual diversity. After this stimulating ... Read More

  • The Current State and Future of Peer Relations Research: Commentary on the
           Special Section

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As indicated by all contributions to this special section, peer relations are a fundamental context for development. Experiences of children and adolescents with peers affect developmental outcomes. Therefore, the study of peer relations continues to be important, and peer relations research continues to be conducted.As indicated by DeLay and Bukowski (this volume) peer relations are situated at multiple levels of social complexity, and the effects of experiences with peers cannot be fully understood unless one considers the social contexts in which they occur. Commonly, the levels involved in research on peers are described as individual, dyad, peer group, and larger context beyond the peer group (school ... Read More

  • Introduction: The Future of Research on Peer Relations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Like people, research literatures need to keep moving even as they remain the same (Chandler et al., 2003; Strevens, 2020). When change is too slow, progress is too incremental and research findings become dry and predictable. Habituation soon sets in and researchers and readers lose interest and move to other topics. Other problems occur when change is too rapid. Abrupt change can sever a sense of connection to the past, leading to a loss of identity for the literature and the researchers associated with it. Neither condition attracts and maintains motivated researchers and the readers interested in their studies.Historical accounts of the literature on peer relations show that finding a balance between stability ...

  • Five Priorities for Future Research on Child and Adolescent Peer Influence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Peer influence processes have been studied for decades, and not just by psychologists. Many disciplines have been interested in understanding whether and how nonfamilial social companions affect one another’s interests, attitudes, and behaviors. Indeed, this phenomenon has captured the attention of economists (Grennan, 2019), political scientists (Ferrali et al., 2020), and criminologists (Bayer et al., 2009; McGloin & Thomas, 2019), and also has influenced educational policy (Dishion et al., 1999), marketing (Phua, 2019), and epidemiology (Christakis & Fowler, 2007). However, it may be psychological scientists that have most thoroughly investigated peer influence effects, perhaps especially to understand how ... Read More

  • Looking Beyond Social Motivations: Considering Novel Perspectives on
           Social Withdrawal in Childhood and Adolescence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Social withdrawal refers to the process whereby a child removes themself from opportunities for peer interaction (Rubin et al., 2009). A key component of this conceptualization is that the resulting relative lack of social interactions emanates from factors internal to the child (e.g., social fear or a preference to spend time alone). This distinguishes social withdrawal from active isolation, which denotes the experience of being ostracized or excluded by the peer group (i.e., the lack of peer interaction reflects external factors; Rubin & Mills, 1988). Regardless of its putative source, a persistent lack of peer interaction in childhood is widely considered as a substantive risk factor for a host of ... Read More

  • Neural Underpinnings of Peer Experiences and Interactions: A Review of
           Social Neuroscience Research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Adolescence is a period of positive and negative opportunities, for which the development of both peer relations and the brain is important. When children grow into adolescence, the prominence of peers becomes salient. Adolescents shift their attention from parents to peers, yielding peer relationships as a domain that becomes increasingly important for support, companionship, belongingness, and their social, emotional, and mental development (Bagwell & Bukowski, 2018). The extent to which adolescents spend time with peers also reflects the increased salience of peers. In general, adolescents spend much more time with friends than with parents or other adults, weigh peer opinions more heavily, and often focus on ... Read More

  • Back to the Dyad: Future Directions for Friendship Research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Friendships in childhood and adolescence are close relationships that involve mutual affection. Most friendships form between individuals with histories of interacting and who are similar to each other in a number of characteristics and traits (e.g., sex, race/ethnicity, interests, and social behaviors such as aggression and social withdrawal). Relative to relationships with parents and even siblings, friendships tend to be more egalitarian and come with assumptions of voluntariness and less of an expectation of permanence (for exceptions, see Krappmann, 1996). This means that both parties contribute to the relationship and need to “work on the friendship” or else it could be fractured by one or both parties ... Read More

  • Social Media and Peer Relationships in Adolescence: Current State of
           Science and Directions for Future Research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Social media and online communication platforms are increasingly common ways for adolescents to connect with their peers (see boyd, 2014; Underwood et al., 2018). In fact, over 95% of adolescents aged 13–17 living in the United States have access to a smartphone, 44% report going online at least several times per day, and 45% of teens say they are online “nearly constantly” (Pew Research Center, 2018). Adolescents’ online activities may include information gathering, streaming music and videos, shopping, and connecting with peers. Given the centrality of peers to the adolescent experience (Rubin et al., 2007), it is not surprising that online engagement with peers over social media is a primary activity (Lenhart ... Read More
