Abstract Background. Deficits in self-regulatory control (SRC) represent a core feature of externalizing (EXT) symptoms (e.g., rule-breaking behavior or aggressive behaviors) in adolescents. Objectives. This review aims to specify the added value of ecologically valid assessments at a micro-level when examining the associations between SRC and EXT symptoms in adolescents. Method. The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis (PRISMA) 2020 was followed to report this systematic review. The search strategy addressed the added value of (1) naturalistic assessment for the understanding of the relationship between (2) SRC and (3) EXT symptoms in (4) adolescents. We conducted comprehensive searches in bibliographic databases. An additional search was conducted in Google Scholar and supplementary studies were identified through backward and forward citation tracking. Results. Twenty-four studies (including 4’071 adolescents) met the inclusion criteria. The methods used to assess naturalistic aspects included the experience sampling method (ecological momentary- or ambulatory assessment) and the time-course approach (i.e., real time assessment of SRC processes referring to situations approximating real life experience where SRC are to be engaged such as in frustrating situations). Micro-level ecological assessments, when mapping the intra-individual relationships between SRC processes and EXT symptoms over time in adolescents within their natural context (i.e., real world) in real time, added a finer-grained observation alongside with a higher ecological validity. Conclusion. Ecological micro-level approaches may enhance the understanding of the complex interplay between SRC and EXT symptoms in adolescence, especially in interventional studies, allowing for the acquisition of endpoints with a higher relevance for everyday functioning.
