Deviant Friends and Early Adolescents' Emotional and Behavioral Adjustment.
Brendgen, Mara; Vitaro, Frank; Bukowski, William M.
Journal of Research on Adolescence, v10 n2 p173-89 2000
Investigated whether friendships with deviant peers would be related negatively to the emotional and behavioral adjustment of 305 adolescents, 13 years of age. Found that adolescents with deviant friends were more delinquent than those with no mutual friends or nondeviant friends, and showed similarly problematic depression levels as friendless youth but were less lonely than the latter group.
