Description

The current study examined the potential mediating role of emotional rumination and emotional inhibition in the relationship between parent-adolescent communication and anxiety in late adolescence. Two hundred fifty-eight undergraduate students at Midwestern University completed a series of anonymous questionnaires regarding perceptions of their parent-adolescent communication, emotional rumination and inhibition as well as symptoms of anxiety. Multiple mediation using the PROCESS approach demonstrated that emotional rumination mediated the relationship between parent-adolescent open communication and anxiety in late adolescence. Emotional inhibition was not a significant mediator between parent-adolescent communication and anxiety.
