Developmental Timetables in Adolescence and Young Adulthood: The Role of Interpersonal Ambivalence

Project Team: Rainer K. Silbereisen, Martin Pinquart

Social norms regarding family life have become ambiguous due to pluralization of ways of living, new demands for high flexibility, and change in the values of children. The aim of this project is to develop an instrument for assessing ambivalence concerning partnership and family decisions, to investigate antecedents and consequences of ambivalence as well as correlates and stability over time in a panel study.
