Abstract

Across the life-span, individuals face various biographical transitions that are more or less normative for adaptive development within a society. Pearlin (2009) noted that "probably no concept is more instrumentally central than the notion of transitions, which usually refers to the movement into and exit from various institutional roles". Transitions provide new social roles, expose individuals to new ecological settings, and carry the potential for new adaptation and longer-term development of psychosocial functions. The two major research questions are the same as in the previous chapter. First, how are the biographical transitions to romantic involvement in adolescence and living together with a romantic partner in emerging adulthood related to select psychosocial outcomes? Second, are the associations of transitions and psychosocial outcomes moderated by membership in a particular ethnic group? However, in contrast to the previous chapter, we focused on ethnic groups in Israel here. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)
