The purpose of the study was to test a staged theoretical model designed to explain depression in adolescents in Korea. Although considerable attention has been paid to identify depression experienced by adolescents, there has been a lack of research of causal model on depression of adolescents in Korea. The model tests the theoretical assertions and certain empirical investigations in the depression of adolescents. The model has two assumptions. One assumption is that contextual antecedents are sufficient to explain the causal factors affecting the depression. The other assumption is that personal outcome of coping has an impact on the depression of adolescents. A correlational descriptive design which employed a staged causal model as the theoretical base, was used to assess the relationships among the various independent and dependent variables. In this study, the model contained three stages comprised of stress(stage 1), coping(stage 2), and depression(stage 3). Coping was chosen as a mediating variable to test the implicit assumption that stress affects the depression through passive coping. A total 1221 subjects from high schools were participated in this study. Three instruments, Life Event Checklist(LEC) by Johnson and MeCutcheon(1980), Coping Scale by Folkman and Lazarus(1985), and Beck Depression Inventory(BDI) by Beck(1967) were used. For LEC, internal consistency estimate for the tool was .70 of alpha. Coping Scale had a reliability coefficient of alpha=.93. For BDI, Cronbach's alpha for 21-item scale was .86. The concept of depression that explains how adolescent respond and express the meaningful experiences will be described. Issues involved in conceptualizing depression will be discussed. Findings and issues related to a staged empirical model designed to explain depression in adolescents in Korea, will be presented.
