Adolescent Dress, Part I: Dress and Body Markings of Psychiatric Outpatients and Inpatients.
Michelman, John D.; And Others
Adolescence, v26 n102 p375-85 Sum 1991
Investigated dress and body markings of 100 hospitalized and never-hospitalized adolescent psychiatric patients using in-depth interviews. Found that hospitalized patients had higher incidence of self-scarring, but other individual expressions of appearance did not differentiate two groups. Suggests that dress and appearance observations, questionnaires, photo reviews, self-portraits, and family discussions contributed to beneficial effect of psychotherapy. (Author/PVV)
