The Interpersonal Context of Emotion: Anger with Close Friends and Classmates.
Whitesell, Nancy Rumbaugh; Harter, Susan
Child Development, v67 n4 p1345-59 Aug 1996
Compared adolescents' reactions to hypothetical situations involving anger-provoking actions by best friends and classmates. Subjects were 96 students, ages 11 through 15. Found that situations involving best friends elicited higher ratings of prolonged negative emotion, but more coping attempts were taken than in the situations involving classmates. Girls seemed to be particularly sensitive to relationship differences. (MOK)
