Worry and Catastrophic Thinking as Mediators Between Negative Home Conditions andDepressive Symptoms in Adolescents (English)
Abstract [sv]

Negativa hemförhållanden har tidigare visats bidra till depressivasymptom. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka: 1) omförhållanden som oro och katastroftänkande är mediatorer mellannegativa hemförhållanden och depressiva symptom, 2) om det finnsnågra könsskillnader i detta avseende. Studien baserades påinsamlade data från ett pågående projekt vid Örebro universitet. Enenkätundersökning utfördes på 18 högstadieskolor i tre mellansvenskastäder med totalt 2749 elever i årskurs 7 och 8. Resultaten visade enpositiv korrelation mellan negativa hemförhållanden och depressivasymptom, samt att båda faktorerna oro och katastroftänkande partielltmedierade mellan negativa hemförhållanden och depressiva symptom.Det fanns könsskillnader som visade att flickor som blev utsatta förpsykologisk kontroll speciellt hade ett katastroftänkande, somkorrelerade högt med depressiva symptom. Slutsatsen är attförhållanden hos människor, som uttalad oro och katastroftänkande,till väsentlig grad förklarar varför negativa hemförhållanden har såkraftig effekt på ungdomars depressiva symptom.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examinewhether the conditions worry and catastrophic thinking are mediatorsbetween negative home conditions and depressive symptoms. Thedata was selected from an existing survey conducted among studentsin grades 7-8 at secondary schools in three Swedish cities. A total of2749 secondary school students participated in this cross-sectionalstudy. The results showed a positive correlation between negativehome conditions and depressive symptoms, and both factors worryand catastrophic thinking partially mediated between negative homeconditions and depressive symptoms. The conclusion is thatconditions in humans, such as pronounced worry and catastrophicthinking, to a substantial degreee explains why negative homeconditions have so powerful effects on young people’s depressivesymptoms.
