Does Self-Competence Predict Gender Differences in Adolescent Depression and Anxiety?
Ohannessian, Christine McCauley; Lerner, Richard M.; Lerner, Jacqueline V.; von Eye, Alexander
Journal of Adolescence, v22 n3 p397-411 Jun 1999
Longitudinal study showed that during 6th and 7th grades boys reported significantly higher levels of self-competence than girls. Boys were less depressed and anxious than girls in 7th grade, but not in 6th grade. Results support the hypothesis that self-competence is partially responsible for the emergence of gender differences in depression and anxiety during early adolescence. (Author/JDM)
