Summary/Abstract: This chapter focuses on the development of some of the negative emotions from early to late adolescence, specifically fear and depressed mood. Adolescence appears to be a very emotional time of life. This is an observation of lay people (who have to put up with the adolescents emotions), psychologists (who study them and try to understand), and adolescents themselves (who actually experience them) and thus may appear rather trivial. However, we believe this ubiquity of emotions in the various contexts and perspectives on adolescence is in itself a salient aspect of the phenomenon of adolescence.
