  • Brief Alcohol Interventions for Adolescents and Young Adults in Emergency
           Department Settings: A Descriptive Review and Meta-analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Brief interventions have shown promise for reducing alcohol use among adolescents and young adults. However, research on the efficacy of these programs has largely ignored one potentially useful approach—interventions which take place in emergency department settings. The current study combines quantitative and descriptive approaches to synthesize the available literature examining the efficacy of brief interventions for alcohol usage among adolescents and young adults in emergency department settings. One-hundred-thirty-eight effect sizes from 11 studies contributed to an overall weighted average effect size as well as effect sizes for variations related to participant demographics, study characteristics (recruitment, instrumentation, and assessment delay) and intervention details (personnel, focal modality, and intervention components). Descriptive analyses examined many of these variations in more detail. Overall, quantitative summary provided little evidence supporting the efficacy of brief interventions in emergency department settings while descriptive analyses revealed primarily a lack of consistency, especially in the definition of adolescence and operationalization of alcohol usage. In many cases, a lack of detailed enough reporting prevented the identification of patterns which might have been present. The discussion includes a call for more agreement in the field regarding operationalization of adolescence and drinking behavior.

  • What Works in Sedentary Behavior Interventions for Youth: A Review of
           Reviews

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Previous reviews have summarized the results of interventions aimed at reducing sedentary behavior among youth, but evidence-based best practice is needed. This systematic review aimed to synthesize evidence to determine which intervention strategies/characteristics are powerful in reducing sedentary behavior among children and adolescents. Eight electronic databases were used. The eligibility criteria were systematic reviews (published in English, Spanish and Portuguese) that analyzed clinical trials to reduce sedentary behavior in young people (age ≤ 18 years). Twenty-nine studies were included. Eleven out of 29 previous reviews had low methodological quality. Almost all reviews reported that interventions were effective in reducing sedentary behavior; however, most of them (26 reviews) had limited evidence due to the inconsistency of results, low methodological quality and/or small sample size. School have been the most used context and strategies that involve family, used control devices, educational materials and standing desks show effectiveness. However, other answers are still unclear, such as the effectiveness of interventions for different types of sedentary behaviors (e.g., TV time), the necessary length for intervention, and the effectiveness of mediators. Thus, future and high-quality studies should consider addressing such questions in order to support evidence-based interventions to reduce sedentary behavior.

  • A Critical Review of Education-Based Sleep Interventions for Undergraduate
           Students: Informing Future Directions in Intervention Development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Young adult undergraduate students are known to be a sleep-deprived population. Sleep disturbances among college students pose many potential risks to health, safety, and learning, and several education-based sleep interventions have been developed to improve sleep among college students. While many interventions have been found to improve sleep hygiene behaviors and sleep outcomes, few studies have identified and examined intervention components that are associated with these improvements. A review was warranted to synthesize current research on education-based sleep interventions and to propose recommendations to inform intervention development. The current review aimed to compare and analyze existing sleep education interventions with regard to specific intervention components and study designs. Through this review and critical appraisal of 12 intervention studies, we found that both brief sleep education interventions and semester-long sleep education courses statistically significantly (p ≤ 0.05) improved sleep knowledge, sleep behaviors, and sleep health among undergraduate students. Cognitive behavioral strategies, specifically self-monitoring, were associated with significant improvements in sleep outcomes, and, thus, may be relevant additions to sleep education-based interventions for college students. Future intervention research is needed to increase our understanding of healthy sleep behavior change among sleep-deprived college students, and to improve interventions to address the adoption and maintenance of healthy sleep behavior. Recommendations are intended to help inform future directions in sleep intervention development for young adult undergraduate students, who are at increased risk for sleep disruption and disturbance and their attendant effects on well-being, performance, safety, and overall health.

  • Applying What is Known About Adolescent Development to Improve
           School-Based Mental Health Literacy of Depression Interventions: Bridging
           Research to Practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Rates of depression are the highest in adolescence in comparison to any other period of the life course. Yet, when depressed, the majority of adolescents do not seek formal help to treat their suffering. School-based mental health literacy of depression interventions aim to improve adolescents’ help-seeking for depression, by enhancing their knowledge about depression, fostering positive attitudes toward depression and help-seeking, and encouraging behavioral self-efficacy in help-seeking. While widespread, the effectiveness of these programs is inconsistent, and when properly evaluated, they only increase depressed adolescents’ help-seeking behavior at modest rates. This review argues that these interventions lack consideration of several important domains of adolescent development, as well as what is known about decision-making in the depressed adolescent mind. Accordingly, the specific cognitive and socio-emotional processes involved in adolescent decision-making are reviewed in order to highlight avenues for improving mental health literacy and help-seeking in depressed young people. Specific recommendations for program delivery are discussed.

  • Beyond Body Image: A Systematic Review of Classroom-Based Interventions
           Targeting Body Image of Adolescents

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Body image is especially relevant to the developmental period of adolescence, given the various physical and social changes that take place during this time. Though body dissatisfaction tends to be normative, especially among females, universal prevention programs have been established to intervene prior to body image concerns becoming severe and established. However, prevention efforts vary in their impact on body image. The current project systematically reviewed the literature on body image to determine how universal, classroom-based efforts impact adolescent body image and what program and participant elements help make programs successful. Findings are promising, demonstrating that interactive universal prevention programs can improve adolescents’ body image. However, program effects are generally small and short in duration. The Developmental Theory of Embodiment, which emphasizes body relations that extend beyond body image, is used to evaluate current programs and to guide recommendations for future interventions in an attempt to make these programs more effective.

  • Addressing Mental Health Stigma in Early Adolescence: Middle School
           Antistigma Interventions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Early adolescence is a crucial period in the development of mental health disorders. Although a significant number of adolescents experience mental health needs, only a third of adolescents with mental health disorders receive treatment; many adolescents cite the stigmatization of mental health disorders as a deterrent to seeking help. Cognitive and social developments in early adolescence make middle school an ideal period to combat stigma. School-based antistigma interventions, however, have historically targeted high school and college students, thus missing a valuable window for intervention. This article reviews existing empirical studies on middle school antistigma interventions, along with examining relevant developmental research and theory. Taken together, the literature points to the significant potential such interventions may hold for shifting middle school students’ knowledge and attitudes around mental health disorders. In particular, interventions drawing on active learning approaches that incorporate youth’s voices, perspectives, and leadership may be more effective in influencing various aspects of mental health stigma among middle school students. At the same time, there are significant limitations to the current literature. Recommendations for future research are discussed.

  • Trajectories of Mental Health Difficulties in Young People Who are
           Attracted to the Same Gender: A Systematic Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: There is clear evidence that people who are attracted to the same gender face worse mental health outcomes than their peers; however, it is unclear if this problem is worse at particular stages of development. To clarify this, a systematic review was conducted to describe the overall trajectories of mental health difficulties across development for same-gender attracted youth compared to their peers. The search identified ten studies that examined depressive symptoms, suicidality and eating disorder symptoms. Disparities in these outcomes were evident by the earliest time points recorded and lasted across the full age range of youth under investigation (ages 10–25). There was some evidence that risk of depressive symptoms and suicidality specifically for same-gender attracted youth was greater in both absolute and relative terms during late adolescence. As young people who are attracted to the same gender are vulnerable to mental health problems across their youth, psychological interventions should be developed which target this group across this span. Interventions beginning at least as early as early adolescence may be ideal to help avoid particular elevations in depressive symptoms and suicidality which are evident in late adolescence for this group.

  • Over-time Fluctuations in Parenting and Adolescent Adaptation Within
           Families: A Systematic Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Parenting theories describe that fluctuations in parenting and adolescent adaptation are linked within the same families. Studies on these so-called ‘within-family’ effects between parenting and adolescent adaptation are summarized in the current systematic review. Through a database and backward citation search, 46 eligible peer-reviewed studies were found, which were published between 2002 and 2018. The studies assessed a variety of parenting (i.e., support, control, negative interaction, time spent together, relationship quality, and differential parenting) and adaptation dimensions (i.e., externalizing and internalizing problems, affect, and interpersonal, academic, and physical functioning). Concerning the design of the studies, typical measurement intervals were either days (k = 10) or 6 months or longer (k = 30). Moreover, only six studies tested (and mostly found) heterogeneity in random slopes, and 20 studies used a moderation approach to explain heterogeneity. Of the concurrent associations, some (but not all) of the few available studies suggested that increases in parental control and support and decreases in negative interaction within a family were associated with decreases in externalizing and internalizing problems, as well as other indices of adolescent maladaptation. However, with respect to time-lagged associations, there is to date hardly any empirical evidence that parenting and adolescent adaptation predict each other within families. Based on the identified theoretical lacunas and empirical limitations, directions are provided for future within-family parenting studies.

  • Discrimination and Developmental Processes: Bridging the Research Gap with
           Adolescents of Arab Descent in America

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Arab Americans are one of the largest growing bicultural groups in the United States. Arabs in America have historically faced discrimination, prejudice, and stereotyping, especially after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The impact of these experiences on Arabs in America is likely to have dire consequences, especially for adolescents as they develop their identities and well-being. This article provides a narrative review of research focusing on the impact of discrimination experiences on developmental processes of ethnic identity and self-concept in adolescents of Arab descent in America. The research on this group was found to be scarce but more recently emerging, and to contain various methodological weaknesses within studies. This narrative review discusses these limitations, as well as the gaps found within the studies reviewed that need to be addressed in future research endeavors in order to strengthen and increase the body of evidence regarding adolescents of Arab descent in America.

  • Determinants of Long-Acting Reversible Contraception (LARC) Initial and
           Continued Use Among Adolescents in the United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) has gained attention as a promising strategy for preventing unintended adolescent pregnancies in the US. However, LARC use among adolescents at risk for unintended pregnancy remains low compared to women in their 20s. The purpose of the current study was to synthesize the empirical literature published between 2010 and 2018 identifying the facilitators of and barriers to adolescents’ (< age 20) LARC use in the US. Thirty quantitative and qualitative studies were included in the current systematic review. The facilitators of and barriers to adolescent LARC use fell within five themes: LARC method characteristics, individual characteristics, social networks, healthcare systems, and historical time and geographical region. Barriers to adolescent LARC use largely echoed those identified in previous research noting the barriers to LARC use among young adult women (e.g., navigation of healthcare system logistics, common adverse side effects associated with some LARC methods). However, qualitative studies identified adolescents’ mothers as central figures in helping adolescents successfully obtain the LARC methods they desired. Conversely, adolescents’ partners seemed to only play a minor role in adolescents’ contraceptive decisions. The findings also suggested some subpopulations of adolescents may be experiencing pressure to initiate LARC use or have less ability to have their LARC device removed if they wish to discontinue use. Adolescent health practitioners and clinicians should consider the unique social–environmental influences of adolescents’ contraceptive access and behaviors to best meet adolescents’ contraceptive needs and desires.

  • The Role of Sociocultural Factors in Student Achievement Motivation: A
           Cross-Cultural Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Motivation is an essential determinant of academic learning, educational choices, and career decisions during adolescence and early adulthood. While achievement motivation has been widely studied across Western populations, recent work has emphasized the importance of examining the universality versus cultural specificity of motivation constructs across countries or diverse cultures. This article is a systematic review of the current discourse surrounding developmental and gender differences in student motivation in the disciplines of mathematics and English, offering comparisons of how these patterns are deployed within Western and East Asian countries. Guided by expectancy–value theory, this review focuses on ability self-concept and task values as two prominent motivational constructs. The authors first examine age and gender differences in the development of ability self-concept and task values among those from Western and East Asian countries from primary school to secondary school. Next, the sociocultural and contextual factors driving developmental and gender differences in motivation are discussed. The article concludes by summarizing the limitations of existing literature and suggesting new lines of inquiry to advance knowledge in cross-cultural studies on student achievement motivation.

  • A Gender Prototypicality Theory of Adolescent Peer Popularity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Despite its salience to adolescents and its relevance for behavioral adjustment, there are few theories explaining the development of peer popularity. In this article, the authors present a gender prototypicality theory of the development of popularity. Popularity refers to social visibility, power, and prestige among peers. Gender prototypicality theory argues that popularity as a distinct form of peer status emerges at the transition to adolescence, as a byproduct of intensifying cross-sex peer interactions and competition for opposite-sex attention as romantic development intensifies. The theory further argues that popularity will be ascribed disproportionately to young adolescents who conform to gender-typical roles in appearance, behavior, and other features, as these youth are more likely to attract the opposite-sex attention that contributes to social status among peers. Given the salience of emerging romantic interactions at this developmental period, adolescents who are leading the way in spending time with the opposite sex are likely to garner considerable attention from peers. This confluence of events begins the process of consolidation of social power into a relatively small proportion of the peer group.

  • Mapping the Intersections of Adolescents’ Ethnic-Racial Identity and
           Critical Consciousness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Ethnic racial identity and critical consciousness frame how youth of color understand themselves in their racialized worlds. Although both may be salient in the lives of youth of color, little work investigates how ethnic racial identity and critical consciousness development overlap to promote positive outcomes during adolescence. This theoretical paper contributes to this effort, providing an overview of research on both phenomena and mapping their potential areas of congruence. This article concludes with suggestions of how the two processes might influence one another to foster positive developmental outcomes among youth of color. This work urges researchers to examine the intersections of ethnic racial identity and critical consciousness processes among youth of color that can lead to a more holistic understanding of how youth of color draw upon these processes to resist and challenge racial marginalization, as well as navigate diverse sociopolitical contexts.

  • LGBTQ+ Youth’s Experiences and Engagement in Physical Activity: A
           Comprehensive Content Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Research suggests that sexual and gender minority (e.g., lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning; LGBTQ+) youth report avoiding physical activity settings (e.g., physical education class, locker rooms, and sport fields) due to feeling both unsafe and uncomfortable. These feelings and experiences might deter LGBTQ+ youth from achieving well-documented physical, cognitive, and social-emotional benefits that are often associated with physical activity and sport involvement. A 20-year (1998–2018) content analysis methodology was employed to obtain a more detailed understanding of LGBTQ+ youth’s participation and engagement in physical activity and sport. Minimal literature was obtained (n = 13 studies), along with an overall pattern that sexual minority youth engage in less physical activity than other populations of students. This disparity was more conclusive for sexual minority males then sexual minority females. One study was inclusive of transgender youth and suggested that transgender youth participated in sport to a similar degree as their cisgender peers; though overall, transgender youth felt less safe in typically gender-segregated spaces such as bathrooms and locker rooms. This review shines light on discrepancies of engagement and feelings of safety in the physical activity and sport context among LGBTQ+ youth. This review further delineates methodological characteristics of the yielded studies as a means to comprehensively review this body of literature.

  • Does Ethnic Identification Moderate the Impact of Depression on Obesity in
           Young People' Results of a Systematic Scoping Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Adolescent depression can increase obesity risk, and both health outcomes show strong ethnic and gender disparities. Strong ethnic identification may provide health-related psychological and social resources that could potentially moderate the impact of depression on adolescent obesity. This study reviews peer-reviewed empirical evidence on the combined effect of ethnic identification and depression on obesity in adolescents. A systematic literature search was conducted in Web of Science, Embase Ovid, PsycINFO, CINHAL, PubMed, ProQuest Dissertations (inception to July 2017) for empirical studies reporting on original research or reviews in either English or French. Data were extracted using a standardized evidence table with a priori determined headings, table and quality assessed before narrative synthesis. Fourteen of the 231 potential studies were eligible for full-text screening, however no studies met minimum inclusion criteria; thus, no data were synthesized and assessed. Excluded studies were described nonetheless: studies had small populations, were of varying duration, and reported mixed results. A large research gap exists on the role of ethnic identification as a potential moderator of the depression-obesity relationship in young people, with current work studying its role in the obesity-depression direction despite the known bi-directionality. Future obesity interventions in ethnically diverse populations would benefit from studies aimed at deciphering whether and how ethnic identification mitigates or amplifies the impact of depression on obesity in young people.

  • Conceptualizing Individual Agency in the Transition from School to Work: A
           Social-Ecological Developmental Perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article addresses the ongoing debate on the role of agency and structure in shaping the transition from school to work. Drawing on theories of life-course sociology and life-span psychology an integrated social-ecological developmental approach is presented, conceptualizing individual agency as a relational and intentional process that evolves through interactions with the wider socio-cultural context. Agency is understood as a multi-dimensional construct, influenced by multiple proximal and distal social circumstances that channel the manifestation of agency by offering distinct transition pathways. The article specifies the ways how social structures support and constrain the development of agency, and asks if individual agency can overcome social constraints, and to what extent and in what circumstances can agency be most effective' It is argued that agency is most influential (a) when social structures are flexible, enabling switching between tracks; (b) during critical windows of opportunity, such as during transitions from one educational track to another or from education into paid employment; (c) in situations when individuals leave a pre-structured path; (d) when intentions are closely matched to individual competencies; and (e) when socio-economic disadvantage is not overpowering. The analysis presented in this paper should enable researchers to expand and deepen their understanding of the role of structure and agency in shaping school-to-work transitions and inform empirical research on the topic.

  • A Systematic Review of Sexual Orientation Disparities in Disordered Eating
           and Weight-Related Behaviors Among Adolescents and Young Adults: Toward a
           Developmental Model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Adolescence is a sensitive period for the development of disordered eating and weight-related behaviors, and sexual minorities may be particularly at risk due to heightened minority stress and challenges related to sexual identity development. This review synthesized findings from 32 articles that examined sexual orientation disparities (each with a heterosexual referent group) in four disordered eating behaviors (binging, purging, restrictive dieting, diet pill use) and four weight-related behaviors [eating behaviors, physical activity, body image, and body mass index (BMI)]. Potential variations by outcome, sex, race/ethnicity, and developmental stage were systematically reviewed. Evidence supporting sexual orientation disparities in disordered eating and weight-related behaviors was more consistent among males than females. Among females, sexual orientation disparities in disordered eating behaviors appeared to be more pronounced during adolescence than in young adulthood. Sexual minority females generally reported more positive body image than heterosexual females but experienced disparities in BMI. Sexual orientation differences in eating behaviors and physical activity were especially understudied. Incorporating objectification and minority stress theory, a developmental model was devised where body image was conceptualized as a key mechanism leading to disordered eating behaviors. To advance understanding of sexual orientation disparities and tailor intervention efforts, research in this field should utilize longitudinal study designs to examine developmental variations and incorporate multi-dimensional measurements of sexual orientation and body image.

  • Psychosocial Interventions for Mental Illness among LGBTQIA Youth: A
           PRISMA-Based Systematic Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA) youth experience a unique range of psychosocial stressors often culminating in poor mental health outcomes. A systematic review of trials that evaluated psychosocial interventions for LGBTQIA youth aged 12–25 was undertaken to evaluate the effect of treatment components and participant-related variables on treatment outcome. The results suggest that creating safe, accepting places, discussion of shared experiences, and using a cognitive behavioural or attachment-based family therapy framework significantly decreased depression, sexual minority stress, anxiety and drug and alcohol use, and enhanced participant approval. LGBTQIA youth had poorer baseline mental health than non-LGBTQIA youth and experienced greater improvements. Further experimental research is needed to define effective treatment components and relevant individual factors to maximise treatment efficacy.

  • Sex Trade Among Youth: A Global Review of the Prevalence, Contexts and
           Correlates of Transactional Sex Among the General Population of Youth

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Transactional sex, the casual exchange of sexual favors for money or gifts, has been associated with negative outcomes and health risks, particularly among youth. This global review of the evidence explores trends of buying and selling sex among the general population of male and female youth across 28 countries. It compares the differences and similarities in prevalence rates between genders (male versus female), sex trading activities (selling versus buying), and country income groups (high-income versus low- and middle-income countries) and examines the relationships and situations surrounding transactional sex, and its correlates. The screening of reports resulted in the inclusion of 37 manuscripts (N = 120,447 participants), involving peer review and grey literature describing longitudinal and cross-sectional research across 7 high-income and 21 low- and middle-income countries. The review of prevalence rates suggests relatively low rates of transactional sex in high-income countries (with selling and buying rates below 10% in all countries) and relatively high, although varying rates, in low- and middle-income countries (with selling and buying rates of 60% or higher in seven countries). Gender disaggregated data suggests that boys are more likely than girls to sell sex in high-income countries while the opposite seems to be true in low- and middle-income countries. The findings suggest that initial contact between sellers and buyers is most often established through friends, acquaintances, and dating websites. The age of onset is around 15 years, many sellers and buyers already know each other before trading sex, and they are often of a similar age. Money is the most commonly used form of compensation. Correlates of selling sex include involvement in other risky sexual behaviors, substance use, infection with sexually transmitted diseases, mental health problems, family break-up, and a history of victimization. No or mixed relations have been found with socioeconomic and educational status. The correlates of buying sex include promiscuity, substance use, violence perpetration and, to some extent, higher socioeconomic status. Recommendations for future research are discussed.

  • Social Risk Factors of Institutionalized Juvenile Offenders: A Systematic
           Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: While researchers have investigated the various characteristics of juvenile offenders and the influence of risk factors for delinquency, to date, no such comprehensive review exists to present social risk factors for institutionalized juvenile offenders within and across the social domains of school and community, family, and peers. A systematic research review from 1979 through 2018 yielded 51 studies concerning institutionalized juvenile offenders’ social risk factors that relate to school policies and community disadvantage, parenting and family involvement, and peer influences and group membership. Twelve studies included two social risk factor domains and no studies included all three domains. With the likelihood of juvenile offending and subsequent institutionalization increasing as the number of risk factors and risk factor domains increase, future research should examine the independent effects of a multifaceted intervention aimed to mitigate multidomain risk associated with juvenile offending. As effective interventions for juvenile offenders should target multiple social domains, guidance for interventions that reflect the interrelatedness of risk factors to most efficiently and effectively serve youth in the various environments in which youth engage in and the people with whom youth regularly interact are discussed.
