Participants were 155 preadolescents (72 boys and 83 girls; [X-bar][subscript age] at T1 = 10.74 years). Bullying, defending, and outsider behaviors…

A distinction was made between descriptive…

Krause, Elizabeth D.; Vélez, Clorinda E.; Woo, Rebecca; Hoffmann, Brittany; Freres, Derek R.; Abenavoli, Rachel M.; Gillham, Jane E. – Journal of Early Adolescence, 2018
Recent research suggests that rumination may represent both a risk factor for and consequence of depression, especially among female samples. Nevertheless, few longitudinal studies have examined a reciprocal model of rumination and depression in early adolescence, just before rates of depression diverge by gender. The present study evaluated a…
