Differential Vulnerability of Dependency and Self-Criticism among Disadvantaged Teenagers.
Luthar, Suniya S.; Blatt, Sidney J.
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v5 n4 p431-49 1995
Examined whether 142 inner-city adolescents with different dysphoric tendencies vary in the types of life experiences to which they are most vulnerable. Found that self-criticism interacted with both interpersonal and academic indices, whereas dependency interacted only with interpersonal indices. Trends involving self-criticism and grades indicated that ramifications of academic achievement can vary across sociodemographic groups. (HTH)
