An experimental investigation of developmental and individual differences in adolescent risky decision making: the role of peers, siblings and parents.

Samenvatting

This project investigates developmental and individual differences in risky decision making in relation to problem behavior among a Dutch sample of adolescents, across two educational levels and among several ethnic groups. Using an experimental research paradigm designed to elicit real-time risky decision making, a cross-sectional sample of 12-14 year olds and 16-18 year olds will be studied to examine the influence of peers, parents and siblings on risky decision making. Personality and relationship characteristics in relation to risk taking will also be investigated. The adolescents will be followed 12 and 24 months later.
