Adolescent Girls May Have More Relationship-Related Stress Than Boys

HealthDay (10/16, Preidt) reports that, according to a study published online in the journal Clinical Psychological Science, adolescent “girls have more relationship-related stress than boys, which puts them at greater risk for depression.” After assessing “400 white and black American teens” for depression four times at intervals of approximately seven months, researchers found that “girls had more relationship-related stress (such as fights with parents or friends) than boys, which increased their risk for depression.”
