Corporal Punishment and Psychological Control as Risk Factors forDepressive Symptoms in Adolescents¹ (English)
Abstract [sv]

Fysisk bestraffning och psykologisk kontroll som utförs av föräldrar är exempel på problematiska föräldrabeteenden som kan orsaka depressiva symptom hos ungdomar. Studiens syfte är att undersöka om det finns skillnader i depressiva symptom mellan ungdomar som har utsatts för fysisk bestraffning och ungdomar som har utsatts för psykologisk kontroll över tid. Studien använder sig utav sekundärdata från ett forskningsprojekt, bestående av enkätsvar som har samlats in från ungdomar mellan 13-15 år i en mellanstor svensk stad. Studien visade inga skillnader i depressiva symptom hos ungdomarna när symptomen av fysisk bestraffning och psykologisk kontroll jämfördes över tid. Dock var sambanden mellan fysisk bestraffning och depressiva symptom svagare än mellan psykologisk kontroll och depressiva symptom.

Abstract [en]

Corporal punishment and psychological control exercised by parents are examples of problematic parental behaviors that can cause depressive symptoms in adolescents. The study aims to investigate whether there are differences in depressive symptoms among adolescents who have experienced physical punishment and adolescents who have experienced psychological control over time. The study used secondary data from a research project, consisting of survey responses collected from adolescents in the ages between 13-15 years old in a medium-sized Swedish city. The study showed no differences in depressive symptoms in adolescents over time when the symptoms of physical punishment and psychological control were compared. However, the relationships between physical punishment and depressive symptoms was weaker than between psychological control and depressive symptoms.
