The following are references used by Owens in preparing articles on teenagers and their use of the physical environment. Professor Owens’s research focuses on the environmental needs and preferences of teenagers. She has conducted studies of teens’ valued places in California, West Virginia, and Australia; conducted a three-site case study of community skateboard parks; and participated in a multi-disciplinary/multi-state study on resilience to violence among at-risk youth.
