Special Issue "Social and Family Determinants of Adolescent Adjustment"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Health Care Sciences & Services".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 May 2020).
Social and, particularly, family influence on adolescent adjustment is a main topic of interest in psychology. Research has largely analysed the influence of social factors that contribute to adolescent health and well-being. Different aspects of family functioning, such as parenting styles and other family characteristics that can determine adolescent adjustment, are an issue of increasing interest, since new results are emerging in this area. Recent research has shown the importance of considering the social and cultural context where the adolescent is growing up as a moderating variable in the relation between family variables and adolescent adjustment, estimating different aspects of adolescent behaviour and well-being as adjustment criteria.
In this Special Issue, we invite authors to contribute research that addresses the influence of social determinants in adolescent adjustment and adaptation to their environment. Papers investigating the influence of parenting and family functioning in adolescent adjustment in different social and cultural contexts will be especially welcome.
