HBSC Network publishes: The Relationship Between School Perceptions and Psychosomatic Complaints: Cross-Country Differences Across Canada, Norway, and Romania

This study examined the predictive value of school climate and peer support for psychosomatic complaints, perceived academic achievement, and school satisfaction; and the extent to which the patterns of relationship were similar across Canada, Norway and Romania and for 13- and 15-year-olds. There were similar cross-national patterns in relationships with stronger links between school climate and the three outcomes than between peer support and the outcomes. The peer support–perceived academic achievement path was in all instances weak or non-signi?cant. With respect to age differences, none were observed in Canada and Norway, but age differences were seen in Romania.
