Abstract

Four hundred-forty adolescents (N = 123 adolescents from divorced families) were given a set of scales on relationships (intimacy with parents and peers, social support, family responsibility-taking) and psychological variables (happiness, self-esteem, depression and risk-taking) to determine the effects of divorce on these variables. The adolescents from divorced families differed very little from those of intact families. As might be expected, they perceived less intimacy with their fathers as well as less social support, and they assumed more family responsibilities.
