Pinquart, Martin; Silbereisen, Rainer K.
Journal of Adolescence, v25 n5 p509-22 Oct 2002
Behavior in conflicts in 76 dyads of mothers and their 11-16-year-old adolescents was observed twice in a 2-year interval. In concordance with individuation theory, results found an increase across assessments in adolescents' autonomy. Results also revealed a decrease of connectedness with their mothers in younger adolescents and an increase of connectedness in older adolescents. (Contains 53 references.) (GCP)
