Appraisal, Social Support, and Life Events: Predicting Outcome Behavior in School-Age Children.
Jackson, Yo; Warren, Jared S.
Child Development, v71 n5 p1441-57 Sep-Oct 2000
Examined relationship between social support and appraisal of life events in predicting adaptive, externalizing, and internalizing behavior in 265 seven- to 13-year-olds. Found support for both the main effects and moderator models of the association between life events and global social support. Gender differences were found. Appraisal of life events as positive appeared to compensate for lower social support. (Author/KB)
