Questions related to Young Adults
The section on physical activity will be part of a large survey that intends to collect information on adolescent and young adults health behavior.
We are aware of the limitations of the self-reported method, yet this will be the most suitable method for our study.
Thank you in advance
Students have been asked about their favorite songs and the results show a preference for reggaeton and love songs. Would I conclude young adults are not really involved in social conflicts but merely in a superficial and hedonistic conception of life?
I would like to find any questionnaires to find out the knowledge and attitude and behaviors towards cerebral palsy among young adults. References with the three topics separately are also appreciated. Thank you
I am an undergraduate Psychology major looking for individuals within the age range of 18-25 who are diagnosed with ADHD.
I would greatly appreciate responses to this survey from anyone who meets these criteria. I'm also looking for ADHD organizations where this form can be circulated, so please reach out if you know of any. Here is the survey link:
I am seeking best practices on providing students in our charter school (ages 17-24) means by which they can be successful in completing their high school credits.
We do not yet know which came first – the social media use or the perceived social isolation,” says senior author Professor Elizabeth Miller. “It’s possible that young adults who initially felt socially isolated turned to social media. Or it could be that their increased use of social media somehow led to feeling isolated from the real world.”
How do we recognize the symptoms of isolation so that we can judge individuals by isolation and at the same time make sure that the communication sites are the direct cause?
The study is a Residential nature-based intervention programme to be conducted for 5 days focussing on strengthening the environmental behaviour of the young adults (18 to 25 age group). The study involves a Pre-Post control group design in which the participants to treatment groups (control and experimental group) will be assigned based on their pre-test scores (of a standard questionnaire). Moreover, matching of the participants to the two groups will be done based on the gender of the participants as well.
The participants shall be assessed at three intervals of time; pre-test prior to the programme and an immediate post-test and a follow-up test after a month of the programme completion.
The aim of the study is to assess the effectiveness of the nature-based intervention programme on the environmental behaviour of young adults.
In this regard, I am unable to find relevant literature to calculate the minimum sample size required for the study. To be precise, the study area falls under the field of "Educational Psychology". On a high note, conducting a pilot study to determine the sample size, with fewer resources and funds also becomes not feasible.
Considering all these, it would highly be appreciable if I get help in deciding the minimum samples required for this residential intervention programme with proper literature cited.
ANY OTHER SUGGESTIONS ARE ALSO WELCOME WITH REGARD TO THE STUDY DESIGN AND METHODOLOGY.
Hi, I'm looking for the normative data of the semantic task "clothes" ("ropa") from the Spanish Verbal Fluency Assessment in a sample of young adults (20-49 years old). If someone has it, please, tell me, it would be extremely helpful for my current research. Thank you so much.
I am planning to write my thesis about hostile speech in young adult novels. So, i need your help. Thanks in advance.
I am looking for a scale to measure psychological health, sort of like the Brief Symptom Inventory or the General Health Questionnaire, both of which are excellent but pretty costly for a student like me. Ideally I would want a tool that is in English, can be used on a young adult population, psychometrically sound AND has multiple domains or subscales (like these both do). I don't want to use different scales to make a composite dependent variable.
Any leads or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Hi everyone, I am conducting a cross-sectional survey (online-based) and wants to assess physical activity level among young adults (university students). Initially I wanted to use IPAQ but it seems that W.H.O just released new PA guidelines which removes the word "at least 10 mins" bout criterion for the adult recommendation on aerobic activity. So I am unable to use the IPAQ, same goes for GPAQ. Is there any other questionnaire suitable to be used especially for young adults?
I require this scale in order to conduct research for my post-graduate degree in masters in counseling psychology. Where can I request the author for the original version of the scale?
Good evening everyone, I'm writing the methodology section for my Bachelor Thesis and I'm quite confused about what the underpinning of my Thematic Analysis actually should be. My research's title is: "Exploring young adults' perceptions of the contribution of social media in wellbeing, self-esteem and body image amidst of the pandemic".
The only thing I have come to terms with is that I am going to adopt an inductive TA and now the question is: should I include a critical realist constructivist thematic analysis as well? I base this thought on the fact that in the previous paragraph of my methodology section (the research design paragraph) I mentioned that I chose the qualitative approach for my research thematic due to the fact that previours researches regarding social media and body image/self-esteem, conclude with social media's role in the (social) construction of beauty, body image and self-esteem. Also, I used Thin's (2018) reasoning for qualitative research of wellbeing due to the many ways that it is culturally defined, expressed and generally "socially constructed". So I was thinking maybe I should adopt this underpinning. The problem is, this is the very first time I am conducting such research fully on my own and I have to decide about the theoretical underpinning of my thematic analysis (my supervisor does not provide me any help on this one even though this is the first time we are asked to choose an underpinning for thematic analysis) and unfortunately after many hours of online reading, I still do not fully understand this approach. If anyone could provide me with some insight or further enlighten me in any way, it would be much appreciated! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
Thank you very much! :))
My study is on the gender difference in character strength of Indian young adults. My second objective is to find the most prevalent character strength in Indian young adults. Which statistical analysis should I use to find it?
I am researching the effect of social media on social physique anxiety of young adults. What statistical test do I use when analysing data from the social physique anxiety scale? (Leary, 2013)
Hi, I am doing a research on 'Exploration of befriending services in tackling Loneliness and Social Isolation in Young Adults.' My original plan was to interview the participants myself and do a semi structured interview with IPA. However I had trouble finding participants who wants to be interviewed by me. One of the organisation's manager offered to interview the participants for me if |I can provide her research questions and participants have agreed to be interviewed by her. Now my question is I can send her interview questions which are open ended but structured. I have added enough probes where clarification is needed. Can I still do IPA on that data or can I use another method of data analysis?
I have been looking for a frequency-based vocabulary test to determine the proficiency of (young) adult learners of Swedish as a foreign language for a while now, but no luck so far. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Background: I am offering a modest monetary incentive for the completion of an online survey and have publicized the survey on social media in order to reach the adolescent and young adult population. I have been inundated with 500+ fake responses (indicated by inconsistent responses, extremely quick response times, or made-up facilities in their open-ended responses). I realize this treads a fine line - I do not want to "cherry pick" the responses that I delete so I would prefer to have a concise way to identify spam responses or (even better) prevent them from occurring.
I have tried adding a CAPTCHA (did not work). I also recently added a password which could only be obtained upon emailing the research team. This also did not work - the fake respondents identified the password and the spam started back up again. I am hesitant to take the survey off of social media since it was the bulk of my participant recruitment plan.
Underlying health conditions that play a role in increasing vulnerability to coronaviruses and risks of higher mortality among young adults and children
Much has been discussed about the policy that best contributes to the incorporation into the labor market of young workers. In this discussion, I liked to focus the question on three points of view, higher education, vocational or professional training or the promotion by the governments of entrepreneurship and self-employment of young people. Regarding university education, during the last half century it has been seen as a tool for social mobility. However, many countries with high rates of university graduates have high levels of youth unemployment and important percentages of graduates work below their qualifications, while inequalities in the labor market grow. I thank you in advance for your opinions.
What is the best method(s) to encourage and motivate young adults to take their academic studies seriously? Many young people (age 18 to 25) don't seem to take their college courses serious. How can instructors/professors motivate them to study hard and be more serious about their college courses?
I will be following up a cohort of participants who were last interviewed 10 years ago. At the time we used validated measure for all sorts of health, educational and social outcomes suitable for adolescents e.g. Revised Children's Manifest Anxiety Scale. These adolescents are now young adults. Should I be using the same measures I used in previous rounds of data collection to allow for comparability and application of methods such as growth curve modeling, or should I be using validated adult measures?
I m thinking to write a paper on the perceptions of citizens in developing on types on human trafficking (with special focus on forced labor and forced marriage)?
How do young adults view it? Is it a stigma, what makes it turn into stigma?
What do you think? Looking forward to hear opinions...
We are living in the world of fast-paced changes, and thanks to ICT. It is really easing learning, especially among the the young adults. That notwithstanding, adult learning seem not to really receiving attention the support in it deserves in the global arena. If it does, we wouldn't be experiencing unwarranted conflicts, political vigilantism, massive poverty and mass extensive unemployment today.
The topics involved are social media and food involving young adults. Majorly to bring the facts in the front that an ordinary user doesn't think of but still got impact in food decision making. It's going to be an online survey questionnaire.
I hope this finds you well. I am a graduate student studying occupational therapy at Utica College. My colleague and I are researching current practice in occupational therapy for promoting self-determination with young adults with intellectual impairments, up to age 21. We hope to discuss the topic, explain what is currently done, and give ideas for ways to incorporate it in practice.
-what is current practice for promoting self-determination in young adults with intellectual impairments? (This includes skills such as decision making, goal setting, and problem solving.)
-what could be improved upon in this practice area?
Any and all insight on the topic you wish to provide is helpful! Feel free to email us! email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and we hope to hear from you! Take care,
Lindsey and Mona
i need your experience as many middle aged patients the leading complain is knee osteoarthritis and no specific meniscal symptoms , actually i proceed in OAK management conservative or surgical, on the contrary some young adult came with knee pain and MRI shows Grade I degeneration also i start with conservative measures till the specific meniscal symptoms appear or the patient become free of complain.
Sickle cell disease is a lifelong, genetic condition characterised by acute and chronic painful exacerbations. There is increasing evidence about experiences of patients transitioning from paediatric to adolescent care. But little is known of the life experiences of young adults (18-35 Yrs) with sickle cell disease.
Our research consortium of 2 UK universities and 2 Nigerian Universities (De Montfort univ, Leeds univ, Lagos State univ, + univ of Ibadan) is interested in understanding the experiences of young adults with sickle cell disease.
We will like to hear from researchers, working with young adults with sickle cell.
WHO cutoff of less than 13.0 g/dL to define anemia.
A young adult (20-30 years old) with hemoglobin level around 12-13 g/dL. Normocytic, boderline hypochromic, but RBC count within normal limits. All other examination (WBC, PLT, Ferritin, Albumin, Total protein, bilirubin, HbEP, No blast among peripheral blood).
1. Hemoglobin level around 12-13 g/dL has been noticed for more than 7 years!
2. Reticulocyte = 1.3%
1. Could it be a normal variant that showed hemoglobin below lower normal limits?
2. If yes, how about the incidence of hemoglobin level below lower normal limits?
3. If not, what other differential diagnosis?
4. The reticulocyte 1.3% is normal in non-anemic patient, but abnormal in anemic patient. How to make the interpretation?
I am starting to work in the area of psychological counseling of children and young adults with CHD. I would be very grateful to get information on seminal psychological work in this area.

I'm exploring innovative ways of conducting research with teens and younger children. We are looking to measure positive youth development, and normal surveys are not very engaging for this demographic, so I'm curious if anyone has explored any creative ways - e.g., gamification, turning survey into a fun quiz, using apps, etc. Looking for quantitative suggestions at this stage.
The majority of the texts have young adults manipulated by adults or exploited by them. most of them have female protagonists . The major observation is that young adults are colonized by adults whether male or female that the child is marginalized in all spheres.
Im preparing my master thesis in human nutrition and I was a sub-investigator in a RCT. We tested the effects of a fiber drink on gastrointestinal health.
My focus is on the endproducts from intestinal fermentation such as SCFA's and expiratory gasses.
We did not measure compliance in the intervention, and my question is if anyone knows anything about the general compliance of young adults (majority were students, average age 22 y) in clinical trials and (how) does is effect the generalizability of the study.
What are the tools available to measure decision making in the armed forces aspirants( preferably young adults)
I am using YAMC as a benign cell line for overexpression of a oncogene, it is producing a lot of mucous and because of that, it has stopped proliferating. The mucous is making it difficult to culture. I have made a scrambled control variant of the cell line but it is also behaving in the same manner so i can say that it is not because of the oncogene.
i'm doing a research on the role of family background and emotional intelligence as a predictor of anger/negative affect in young adults.
Bonded amalgam Vs. Non- Bonded amalgam Vs. Composite.

I am wondering whether it is possible for healthy young adults to exhibit negative cortisol awakening response (CAR) (cortisol level 30min after awakening lower than cortisol level at awakening) or if on the contrary negative CARs are for sure due to non-compliance. In this latter case should negative CARs be discarded from further analyses?
I've met some adults who were unexpectedly diagnosed as Congenital solitary kidney in ultrasound examination, almost all of them were asymptomatic, one of them (male, 27 years old) measured the function of single kidney with GFR=80%, as there were less related articles and information of this disease, i want to ask if there were any standard guidelines of suggestions for those adults in their daily life to prevent a possibility of late stage renal failure?
Do can you recommend any research about the integrative approach of acting out (among adolescents of young adults) which crosses data from :
- Attachment theory
- Mechanism defenses
- aggressive or violent acting out
- emotional regulation
I am doing literary analysis of Young Adult fiction addressing cultural issues. I have planned to address the themes but I think addressing the characters might be more effective. I wonder if someone has a better plan.
I am seeking information in regards to a new research project I am undertaking. It is an International and National (NZ) review of the available literature on ‘alternative interventions for youth traffic offenders’. Youth in our project covers those between the ages of 14-19 years of age. I am seeking information on interventions that have been proven to have a more positive impact on both reoffending and road safety than the traditional sanctions of custodial sentences, fines and licence demerit points. I will be reviewing information that covers three key areas:
· Graduated Driver Licence System (GDLS) breaches and Unlicensed Driving
· Drink/drug driving
· Other offending (Speed, careless/reckless driving and restraints)
If you are able to furnish me with any information regarding the above or point me to any resources where such information may be available or put me in contact with anyone you believe would be of help in such matters I would be extremely grateful. Kind Regards,
1. Modern life is said to have become more stressful, including for adolescents and youths. Some of the stressors studied included exam & school pressure, relationship issues in the family, and boy-girl relationship, among others. Some of these stressors were even reported in literature to have caused adolescents and early youths to commit suicide, and suicide rate in this age group has been reported to be on the rise.
2. Some literature suggested that our adolescents and youths nowadays have poor coping skills and problem-solving skills in dealing with increasing life challenges. Some literature suggested that our adolescents and youths nowadays are more emotionally vulnerable to external stressors.
3. Will bringing up our children today who are adolescents and youths of tomorrow, by emphasising more religious upbringings and appropriate religious tenets help them in better dealing with their future increasing life challenges when they grow up?
Hello everyone, Does anyone know how to measure the use of screen time by young adults? I'm trying to quantify this (TV, cellphones, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) for finding any relationship with food choices, eating patterns, fitness activities, and overall overweight/obesity, etc. Is there a scale of tool that I can use? Thank you in advance.
I am looking specifically for implementation protocols and/or research around its use for substance use or procrastination (and in young adults would be ideal).
Thanks in advance!
I've found some contradictory information about acceptable International age classification. Can you share with me the information about the new age limits of youth and adult.
I am currently analysing the findings of research I undertook with a uniformed youth organisation. To all intent and purpose they bare the hall marks of a CoP but I feel that there is more. After all these communities are brought together often to solve a problem, my initial thoughts are that as a lens this concept is insufficient to explain the individual motivations of group members.
I'm looking to make a correlation between negative social stigma in Saudi Arabia and suicide in young adult males, particularly those who find difficulties in finding a job, lack the money for a dowry/wife and how it creates negative associations on the family.
I am testing the use of the Hope Scale (Snyder) with young adult, known to be violent offenders (ages 18-30) who are on probation and parole. My principal components analysis offers a 5 factor structure rather then the 2 offered by the original Hope Scale. When I force it to only have 2 loads it gives a nice pretty picture, and doing so is supported by the scree. The eignevalues and the rotated component matrix (which I believe is the most valuable) support 5 components. I can't decide whether to go with 2 or 5. When you look at the component plot in rotated space graph, 2 sure looks neater. If I go with 2 I don't know how to justify it though. There are 4 tests to determine factor loading, and we are 2 and 2 with what to do.
I have seen some questionnaires about social class but it always factors in household income, marital status, and other things that are not fit to ask young adults (college students). Does anyone know of a good questionnaire for determining social class among young adults? Also, if it helps, I'm conducting the study in a 3rd-world country, the Philippines.
I am working on my literature review with an emphasis on Haitian young adults. There appears to be limited literature on this age group. If anyone has any suggestions of databases that would assist me other than the usual PsychINFO, or PsycArticles would be very appreciative. Thank you.

They can be about gender roles and their framing in Young Adult Novels, comparative studies on local vs foreign Young Adult Fiction/Novels, or reflection of the society or young adult social group in Young Adult Novels.
*By local I meant local to any country/society.
The WHO's adverse childhood questionnaire international questionnaire could be an option, but it is still in under development. Besides, this questionnaire is long. I am looking for a validated and short scale to measure adverse childhood experience (ACE) of young adults. I am interested to investigate mediating role of mindfulness and physical activity between ACE and adult well-being. Thanks!
Harvard University conducted a study of 600 women under the age of 40, finding at least half of early-onset breast cancer resulted in early mortalities. In terms of early diagnostic service for young women under age 40, I addressed this in my dissertation research related to the pros and cons of the recommendations of the United States Preventative Service Task Force. The attached article examines research conducted by Harvard University in young women under age 40. The critical issue relates to a standard needs to be established for young women related to breast cancer.
I am looking for a questionnaire to measure family psychiatric history among young adult informants. I have come across a number of procedures for acquiring this information via structured interviews, but nothing questionnaire-based. Any recommendations?
