Patterns of Depressed Affect during Early Adolescence.
Heath, Phyliss A.; Camarena, Phame M.
Journal of Early Adolescence, v22 n3 p252-76 Aug 2002
This 3-year longitudinal study examined depressed affect during early adolescence. Variable-centered analyses yielded general stability in depressed affect for both boys and girls. Person-centered analysis revealed five patterns of depressed affect, with gender differences only in smaller subgroups that showed patterns of change in depressed affect. Case-level analyses distinguished daily lives of adolescents with episodic versus chronically depressed affect. (Author/KB)
