The Myth of Peer Pressure.
Ungar, Michael T.
Adolescence, v35 n137 p167-80 Spr 2000
The construct of peer pressure was examined as part of a qualitative study of the determinants of mental health for 41 high-risk adolescents. While the concept of peer pressure enables adults to explain youths' troubling behaviors, content analysis of the participants' accounts of their lives reveals peer pressure to be a myth.
