Close Friendship and Imaginary Companions in Adolescence.
Seiffge-Krenke, Inge
New Directions for Child Development, n60 p73-87 Sum 1993
Examined the developmental benefits of adolescents' close intimate friendships with real same-sex friends and imaginary companions in two studies of adolescents who wrote diaries. Found that, even with a high incidence of imaginary companionship as described in diaries, adolescents preferred intense relationships with close real same-sex friends to imaginary companions. (BB)
