Professor Maynard earned her PhD in developmental psychology
with a minor in quantitative studies in 1998 from Bowling Green
State University in Ohio. Her research interests are in adolescent
development from a social-cognitive perspective, particularly in
the contexts of employment and health. While working on her
master's and doctoral degrees in the 1990s, she researched factors
influencing adolescents' prosocial judgments.
Professor Maynard also has experience in scale development
including the development of the Adolescents' Intention to Respond
to Aggression (AIR-A)© scale to measure adolescents' prosocial
decision-making regarding aggressive situations.
With respect to her research interests in adolescent employment,
she has investigated adolescents' development of work values and
behaviors, including organizational citizenship behaviors and
psychological contracts. Her current research includes the
evaluation of teaching pedagogies for use with adolescents and the
study of adolescents' health-related decision-making.
