Roles of age, gender and psychological difficulties in adolescent mentalizing

Published in Journal of Adolescence. 2019, vol. 74, p. 120-129
Abstract Adolescence is a critical period for the development of mentalizing - the imaginative capacity to understand one's own and others' behaviour in terms of underlying mental states. Yet, factors and mechanisms underlying individual differences in adolescent mentalizing remain poorly understood. This exploratory study examined whether and how a) age and gender and b) psychological difficulties correlate with mentalizing performance in adolescents from the general population.
