The purpose of this project is to gain an understanding of how
adolescents who experience adverse life circumstances (e.g. poverty,
abuse) handle their feelings and things that concern them in their lives.
We are interested in this group of teens because we believe they are
at-risk for developing mood disorders and other mental health concerns and
little is known about how they handle their emotional responses to
adversity. Grounded theory methods (Glaser, 1978; Glaser & Strauss, 1967)
are being used to build the theoretical framework for this study. The
study is being conducted in a faith-based prevention program for at-risk
youth. To date, 13 adolescents (92.3% African-American) have been
interviewed as part of this study. For this pilot study, an interview
guide was developed to facilitate discussion of feelings and concerns. The
first three questions were drawn from HEADSS (Berman, 1972), a
psychosocial assessment tool commonly used in primary pediatric care.
These three questions, focusing on the topics of home, school, and
activities, were chosen to help build trust between the adolescent and
researcher. The adolescents are then presented with a list of feelings
they experienced most in the past few weeks, then asked a number of
questions about each feeling they identified. The adolescent responses
will be analyzed using constant comparison methods and will be reported in
the poster. This study will allow us to determine the feasibility of
interviewing adolescents regarding a sensitive topic and obtain
information about how at-risk youth handle their feelings and everyday
concerns in their lives. This pilot study is part of a larger grounded
theory study of adolescent depression funded by the Ohio Department of
Mental Health.
