The purpose of this longitudinal panel study was to investigate developmental and gender influences on stress and coping in adolescents attending a suburban high school in Tennessee.
Data were collected from the same 167 subjects during the freshman year and again during the senior year.
Life events stress was measured through the Adolescent Life Change Event Scale (ALCES) and ways of coping were categoried from data gathered from an open-ended questionnaire.
Girls reported more life events stress at both testings than boys.
Life events stress was greater at senior testing for both girls and boys, but girls' scores increased more.
