Age Differences in Support Processes in Conversations between Friends.
Denton, Kathy; Zarbatany, Lynne
Child Development, v67 n4 p1360-73 Aug 1996
Examined age differences in the use and effectiveness of social support processes emitted during conversations about real life negative events between preadolescent, adolescent, and adult friends. Participants were 86 same-sex friendship dyads. Results indicated that talking to friends alleviated negative affect in all ages, but factors predicting reductions in negative affect differed across age. (MOK)
