Description

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among parent-adolescent communication, rumination, and depression in late adolescence. Data was collected from Midwestern undergraduate psychology students using questionnaires such as the Parent-Adolescent Communications Scale (PAC; Barnes & Olson, 1982), the Emotion Control Questionnaire (ECQ2; Roger and Najarian, 1989), and the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D; Radloff, 1977). Results showed open and problematic communication with mothers were significantly correlated with emotional rumination and inhibition. Open and problematic communication with fathers were significant with emotional rumination, and multiple mediation results had found that emotional rumination significantly mediated the relationship between both open mother and open father-adolescent communication and late adolescent depression.
