The current study examined the effect of parenting and peer ecologies on the development of deviant and violent behaviors during adolescence.
Taking a multilevel approach, the current study examines the extent to which students fluctuations in exposure to family violence and peer deviance are associated with individual levels of bullying perpetration during middle school.
The present study builds on the relational aggression research among adolescents by longitudinally exploring individual and interpersonal factors identified through social cognitive theory and social infor- mation processing theory.
We conducted a longitudinal study on university students’ drinking groups, with a focus on peer-reported and self-reported status as predictors of students’ drinking-related behavior. We first examined average between-persons differences in group members’ typical status as a predictor of systematic changes in their drinking-related behavior over time. We then examined within-person effects, or how students’ drinking-related behavior changes as a function of time-specific changes in their typical status.
This study examined the social selection and influence processes related to bullying and homophobic teasing behaviors, using a Stochastic Actor-Based Model (SABM) for longitudinal networks
