Life Events and Adjustment in Adolescents: The Significance of Event Independence, Desirability, and Chronicity.
Masten, Ann S.; And Others
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v4 n1 p71-97 1994
Examined the significance of three objectively defined characteristics of life events (positivity, negativity, and chronicity) for understanding the relationship between stressful life experiences and adolescent adjustment. Subjects were 176 adolescents and their mothers. Found that events independent of the adolescent's behavior had lower correlations with adjustment scores than events that could be influenced by the adolescent. (MDM)
