... It is also highlighted the use of the Social Skills Rating System (SSRS), an inventory developed by Gresham and Elliot (1990) It is noteworthy that the most presented classes were: communication -three studies (Ates, 2016;Halls, Cooper, & Creswell, 2015;Inderbitzen-Nolan, Anderson, & Johnson, 2007); Making friends -three studies (Bernstein, Bernat, Davis, & Layne, 2008;Inderbitzen-Nolan et al., 2007;Scharf et al., 2016); and Assertiveness -two studies (Hannesdóttir & Ollendick, 2008;Inderbitzen-Nolan et al., 2007). ...
... Parents perceive, understand, and interpret their children's personality and behaviour on the basis of representations which guide their choice and enactment of parenting practices (George & Solomon, 2008;Stern, 1995). These representations include parents' views, emotions, and internal worlds concerning their parenting and relations with their children; these might be verbal and non-verbal, and may involve different levels of awareness (Scharf, Mayseless, & Baron, 2015). thoughts and feelings that a mother holds about her child; they are influenced by the mother's early attachment-related trauma history and her capacity to develop a psychological understanding of the infant without reliance upon primitive defenses and distortions (Slade, 2005). ...
... The second is to introduce the "cannot classify" (CC) category for scoring the respondents who cannot be placed in one of the organised categories of the AAI (secure, dismissing, and preoccupied) (Hesse, 2008). Thus far, the above recommendations have rarely been followed (Kouvo, Voeten, & Silvén, 2015;Scharf, Mayseless, & Kivenson-Baron, 2012). Therefore, this study investigated both the underlying continuous AAI scales and the CC category of the AAI with regard to personality disorders. ...
... Several studies conducted among U.S. soldiers found that social support was associated with mental health and a reduced risk of developing depression and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), 21 especially among female soldiers. 22 Moreover, as studies in Israel have identified an association between parents' perspectives regarding the recruitment of their children for military service and soldiers' adjustment difficulties, 23 in this study we examined both peer support and parents' attitudes toward military service. ...
... One phase of life in which changes in life circumstances and stressful events start to accumulate is the transition from adolescence to young adulthood (Glück & Bluck, 2007;Schwartz, 2016;Schwartz et al., 2016), often referred to as emerging adulthood (Arnett, 2000). Emerging adults experience changes in social roles and contexts, such as finishing education and starting a first job, or committing to a long-term romantic partnership and becoming a parent (Ballas & Dorling, 2007;Cohen et al., 2003;Gutierrez & Park, 2015;Scharf et al., 2004;Zarrett & Eccles, 2006). As life circumstances and experiences change, emerging adult subjective well-being (SWB) tends to fluctuate more often and more intensely than SWB in other age groups (Baggio et al., 2017;Schwartz, 2016). ...
