Abstract

This study assessed latent growth in behavioral inhibition, anger regulation, and goal-setting from ages 12 to 18, as well as links between latent growth and depression, externalizing behavior, and prosocial behavior at age 19. A second goal included examining whether latent growth in these constructs and associations with distal outcomes varied by sex. Generally speaking, self-regulatory subdimensions displayed distinct patterns of developmental growth from ages 12 to 18. Growth in self-regulatory subdimensions did not vary by sex, though initial levels of anger regulation and goal-setting did vary by sex. In addition, self-regulatory subdimensions from ages 12 to 18 were differentially related to adjustment outcomes at age 19. However, sex did not moderate associations between growth in self-regulatory subdimensions and distal outcomes.
