Special Issue Information
Adolescence is a time of critical development for emerging youth, characterized by sensation seeking, psychological growth, and potential engagement in high-risk behaviors. These high-risk behaviors may lead to future health problems in a person’s lifespan, if not prevented. This Special Issue will highlight risk behaviors across adolescence, their risk factors, and prevention programming designed to mitigate high-risk behavior among adolescents. Research for this issue is characterized by high-level analytical methods (e.g., structural equation modeling, meta-analysis, and secondary data) and offers potential ideas for prevention science for adolescent health.
