Abstract/Description: Background: The authors examined Hammen's (1991) model of stress generation in depression in a Black adolescent population. Methods: The longitudinal sample of 1766 participants entered the study at ages 13-19. Stressful event and depressive symptom occurrence over a 1 year period was analyzed. Results: Results supported the stress generation model. Limitations: Data collected in 1986, although findings remain relevant. Conclusions: Depressive symptoms were associated with an increase in negative stressful events. In addition, the study supported the symptom specificity of stress generation to depression versus anxious and conduct disorder symptoms.
