Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This concluding commentary highlights common themes that emerged across the chapters in this volume. We identify strengths and limitations of the core competencies framework and discuss the importance of context, culture, and development for understanding the role of the core competencies in preventing risk behavior in adolescence. We also outline possible areas for future research linking positive youth development and risk prevention programming. (c) Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
