Adolescents' Subjective Distress over Their Emotional/Behavioral Problems.
Phares, Vicky; Compas, Bruce E.
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v58 n5 p596-603 Oct 1990
Among 151 seventh and eighth graders, self-reports of occurrence of behaviors were significantly but moderately correlated with subjects' distress about behaviors. Adolescents rated externalizing behaviors as more distressing to parents than to adolescents; internalizing behaviors as more distressing to self than to parents. Ratings of subjective distress were significantly related to self-perceptions of behavioral conduct and self-worth. (Author/NB)
