Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to examine the relationship of everyday negative events and depression in adolescents. Primarily, we tried to determine whether everyday negative events predicted depression symptoms in adolescents. Also, we examined whether negative automatic thoughts, general self-efficacy, coping strategies and support from family, friends and teachers moderated the relationship between everyday negative events and depression, or if they mediated the said relationship. The research was conducted on a sample of 827 high school students (535 girls and 292 boys). The results did not confirm that negative automatic thoughts, general self-efficacy, coping strategies and support from family, friends and teachers moderate the relationship of negative everyday events and depression. On the other hand, results suggest that negative automatic thoughts, emotion focused coping and support from family, friends and teachers mediate the relationship of negative everyday events and depression in adolescents.
