Father's Image and Self-Image in Adolescents (Age-specific and Gender Aspects)

2256

Abstract

The authors describe results of a pilot study on the correlation between father's image and self-image in adolescents, on its dynamics over the adolescent period, and on gender aspects of father's image and self-image development. The research was carried out on gymnasium pupils aged 11, 13 and 15 years, using questionnaires, interviews and projective techniques. The study revealed that self-image and father's image change over the period of adolescence. The authors conclude that the age of 12-13 years (the 'middle' adolescence) is most sensitive and 'vulnerable' to fatherchild relationships.
