Abstrakt v angličtině:
Over the past two decades, in particular, self-control has emerged as a key probabilistic construct that is highly salient in understanding both developmental processes as well as development outcomes in children and adolescents. Its importance cannot be overstated, based on a very large number of investigations that have transcended a number of disciplines – criminology and criminal justice, developmental sciences, economics, psychological sciences, to name a few – and on work that has been carried out longitudinally as well as cross-culturally. The lecture will contextualize some of the key theoretical milestones and empirical inquiries in the identification of self-control as a distinct construct of interest and study, important for child and adolescent development, well-being, and adjustment, including highlights of Professor Vazsonyi’s own empirical work that has contributed to this body of knowledge. His keen interest and work in this area now spans a quarter century, starting with his dissertation project at the University of Arizona. This will also include some highlights of key preventative and intervention studies on self-control.
