Patterns across Context, Culture, and Age

Niobe Way, Lisa R. Silverman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes key findings about the experience of friendships during adolescence and the influence of micro and macrocontexts on the quality of friendships. It demonstrates support for Sullivan's theory regarding the need for intimate peer relations but suggests that such a need is not limited to the preadolescent phase but extends throughout adolescence. The results also underscore the critical role of macrocontexts in adolescents' experiences of their friendships.
