Sinkkonen, J.; Anttila, R.; Siimes, M. A.
Journal of Youth and Adolescence, v27 n2 p209-18 Apr 1998
Relationships between biological pubertal events and self-image were studied for 59 healthy adolescent boys in Finland at ages 13 and 14. During the year, self-image increased in four domains, with changes in Impulse Control and Emotional Tone related to pubertal events. Changes in emotional health or sexual attitudes did not correlate with body changes. (SLD)
