Children's Written Descriptions of Friendship: A Multidimensional Analysis
Bigelow, Brian J.; La Gaipa, John J.
Developmental Psychology, 11, 6, 857-858, Nov 75
This study examined the conceptual variables that influence friendship as a function of developmental age. Teachers asked students to write an essay about what they expected in their best friends. An analysis of their responses indicated an age-related transition from egocentric to sociocentric and sociocentric to empathic expectations. (JMB)
