Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  2. understand the impact of social support configurations on adolescents' psychological health across developmental stages.
  3. learn about students with vulnerable profiles of social support and implications for support and intervention.

Description

Research has demonstrated the benefit of social support for students’ psychological adjustment. The purpose of this study was to (a) use a person-centered approach to identify profiles of students’ perceived social support from their family, school, and peers; and (b) assess the association between these profiles and students’ psychological functioning across early and late adolescence. Attendees will learn about students with vulnerable profiles of social support and implications for support and intervention.
