Worcel, Sonia D.; Shields, Stephanie A.; Paterson, Carole A.
Adolescence, v34 n136 p689-97 Win 1999
Investigates the telegraphed emotion of "the look," a feature of adolescent social interaction that can quickly initiate or escalate conflict. Using focus groups, teenage females were asked to define the look and to discuss its use and the consequences. Results indicate that the look often results in escalation of conflict, especially a verbal or physical fight. (Contains 11 references.) (Author/GCP)
