Wangby, Margit; Bergman, Lars R.; Magnusson, David
Child Development, v70 n3 p678-99 May-Jun 1999
Examined adjustment problems from late childhood to early adulthood among 500 Swedish girls. Found a diversified pattern of multisyndrome formation in late childhood. The syndrome structure in early adolescence identified externalizing adjustment problems and peer problems. An externalizing syndrome was stable between late childhood and early adolescence, increasing risk of severe maladjustment in adulthood. (Author/KB)
