    Recent studies, as well as public reports, consistently indicate that a growing number of young people have difficulties in making the initial steps into the adult world. This study examines why some young people are successful in establishing age-related projects and can pursue them effectively, while others have difficulties defining and maintaining commitment to their projects and experience increasing personal difficulties. Two theoretical approaches are utilized to address this question. Drawing from social-psychological conceptualizations and from recent theoretical developments within personality and developmental psychology, we examined the extent to which personality and social support systems explain adaptive and maladaptive forms of functioning among emerging adults.

  More than 200 young people were examined at four points of time over a period of six years. Analysis of the data points to the centrality of personality and family resources in assisting or interfering with a smooth and adaptive transition to adulthood. The most salient pattern in the present findings is the consistent impact of efficacy and self criticism on young peoples' level of adaptation over time. Efficacy, the adaptive aspect of the self-construct, predicted higher levels of goal invest and goal progress, and encountering more positive life events. In contrast, self criticism predicted lower goal investment and higher goal stress, increased number of negative events and symptoms. Findings of our study also revealed that in addition to an adaptive personality make-up, available support, in particular paternal support also contributed to young people's outcomes. Thus, successful transitions are facilitated by the existence of personal and social capital.

 Time 4 assessment also includes in-depth interviews examining individuals' professional careers, and romantic/family life. The interviews, currently under analysis, provide very rich data. In addition to information about current status, the interviews shed light on individuals' expectations, accomplishments and failures, and above all reflections about their lives.

  Currently, we have started to fifth assessment of this sample with the focus on the consolidation of work and close relationships during the early 30s.

Israel Anti Drug Authority 2009-2012- The Extended Journey – An Experience of Identity Exploration or Confusion?  The Role of Personal Risk and Protective Factors - NIS 150, 000.

 In the last two decades an increasing number of young Israeli men and women in their early twenties,  have taken an extended trip to the Far East or to South America. Experiences during the trip may include not only visiting or staying at exotic or tourist destinations but also engagement in reckless behaviors such as drug use that may result in serious health problems. Embedded within a developmental psychopathology perspective the study examines the factors that may explain adaptive and maladaptive engagement and outcomes of the extended journey. In particular we are interested to and learn about the risk and protective factors related to increased risk behaviors and outcomes like drug use and subsequent mental health problems during and following the extended journey. For this purpose, 250 young people will be examined before their departure and following their return. In addition, diary data will be collected through the internet during the trip.
