Examined concurrent and longitudinal associations between peer crowd affiliation and internalized distress in a sample of 246 youth. Found that adolescents' report of peer crowd affiliation was concurrently associated with self-concept and levels of internalizing distress. Follow-back analyses revealed that "Populars/Jocks" had experienced significant declines in internalizing distress from grades 4-6 to grades 10-12, whereas "Brains" exhibited some increases in internalizing distress.
