Abstract

Background: Research in the past found similar as well as different genderspecific factors in trying to explain the increase of depression in adolescence. Objective: A four-year longitudinal study explored the different contributions of physical maturity, negative body concept, low self-esteem, different types of stressors, conflict in close relationship and avoidant coping inadolescents with depressive symptoms. Methods: One hundred and seven adolescents and their mothers participated in four annual assessments using diverse instruments. Multiple regression analyses were conducted separately for males and females in order to predictdepressive outcome in late adolescence by entering early to mid adolescence predictors. Depressive symptoms at each time and pubertal status were used as controls. Results: Multiple regression revealed that the factors contributing to depressive outcome were more similar than different. For both genders, avoidant coping and a negative body concept in early and mid adolescence contributed substantially to the level of depressive outcome in late adolescence. Conclusions: Overall, the results suggest similar factors contributing to males' and females' depressive symptoms in late adolescence. However, school stressors in early adolescence explained a significant proportion of females' depressive symptoms in late adolescence, but not for males.
