Discrepancies Between Retrospective and Actual Self-Reports of Peer Victimization Six Years Earlier.

Adrienne Nishina, Luis Armando Parra,

Retrospective peer victimization reports may be inaccurate. With an ethnically and sexually diverse sample, this study compared adolescents' self-reported peer victimization in 6th grade to their own retrospective reports of 6th-grade victimization when they were in the 12th grade, controlling for past and current adjustment. Overall, 12th graders' retrospective victimization ... Read more >>

Developmental Change in Sibling Support and School Commitment Across Adolescence.

Christina R Rogers, Amanda E Guyer, Adrienne Nishina, Katherine J Conger,

School commitment typically declines across adolescence, but the family-level factors that explain this decline have not been fully characterized. This study investigated sibling support as a family resource in predicting school commitment across 7th-10th grade using a sample of 444 adolescents (Mages  = 12.61, 13.59, 14.59, 15.58 years). Results showed that sibling ... Read more >>

Early Adolescents' Peer Experiences with Ethnic Diversity in Middle School: Implications for Academic Outcomes.

Jakeem Amir Lewis, Adrienne Nishina, Alysha Ramirez Hall, Shannon Cain, Amy Bellmore, Melissa R Witkow,

As the U.S. becomes increasingly ethnically diverse, opportunities for cross-ethnic interaction at school may be increasing, and these interactions may have implications for academic outcomes for both ethnic minority and White youth. The current study examines how cross-ethnic peer relationships, measured using peer nominations for acceptance and daily lunchtime interactions, ... Read more >>

Jennifer C Taylor, Carolyn Sutter, Lenna L Ontai, Adrienne Nishina, Sheri Zidenberg-Cherr,

Although increasing attention is placed on the quality of foods in children's packed lunches, few studies have examined the capacity of observational methods to reliably determine both what is selected and consumed from these lunches. The objective of this project was to assess the feasibility and inter-rater reliability of digital ... Read more >>

Mismatches in Self-Reported and Meta-Perceived Ethnic Identification across the High School Years.

Adrienne Nishina, Amy Bellmore, Melissa R Witkow, Karen Nylund-Gibson, Sandra Graham,

Ethnic identification (i.e., one's self-reported ethnicity) is a social construction and therefore subject to misperceptions by others. When adolescents' self-views and others' perceptions are not aligned, adolescents may experience adjustment challenges. The present study examined mismatches between adolescents' ethnic identification (i.e., self-reported ethnicity) and meta-perceptions (i.e., what ethnicity they believed ... Read more >>

Associations Between Adolescents' Weight and Maladjustment Differ With Deviation From Weight Norms in Social Contexts.

Carolyn Sutter, Adrienne Nishina, Melissa R Witkow, Amy Bellmore,

<h4>Background</h4>In line with the reflected self-appraisal hypothesis, previous research finds associations between weight and maladjustment are strongest when there is a mismatch between individuals' weight and the weight norm of their social contexts. However, research has not considered associations in more proximal social contexts. We examined differences in associations between ... Read more >>

How you look versus how you feel: Associations between BMI z-score, body dissatisfaction, peer victimization, and self-worth for African American and white adolescents.

Carolyn Sutter, Adrienne Nishina, Ryan E Adams,

Being overweight and having negative self-perceptions (body dissatisfaction) can have problematic consequences for adolescents physically, socially, and psychologically. Understanding associations between weight, self-perceptions, and peer experiences across ethnicities is particularly important given recent increases in obesity among ethnic minorities. The current study aimed to address these issues by examining Body ... Read more >>

Boys and girls who, during early high school, ... Read more >>

School context protective factors against peer ethnic discrimination across the high school years.

Amy Bellmore, Adrienne Nishina, Ji-In You, Ting-Lan Ma,

Ethnically diverse high school contexts present unique social opportunities for youth to form interethnic relationships, but they may also subject students to certain social challenges such as peer ethnic discrimination. With a sample of 1,072 high school students (55% girls; 54% Latino, 20% African American, 14% Asian, 12% White) attending ... Read more >>

Adolescent daily and general maladjustment: is there reactivity to daily repeated measures methodologies?

Adrienne Nishina,

The present study examined whether repeated exposure to daily surveys about negative social experiences predicts changes in adolescents' daily and general maladjustment, and whether question content moderates these changes.

Microcontextual characteristics of peer victimization experiences and adolescents' daily well-being.

Microcontextual factors (i.e., contextual characteristics of the specific victimization incident) may help to explain the association between adolescents' daily peer victimization experiences and well-being. In the present study, daily report methodology was used to assess sixth (N = 150; 53% girls) and ninth grade (N = 150; 50% girls) students' ... Read more >>
