Abstract and Keywords

This chapter reviews theory and research examining the co-occurrence of disrupted family functioning and adolescent depressive symptoms and disorders. It focuses on three key aspects of family functioning: family adversity, parent-child relationships, and parenting behavior. It concludes that research supports the presence of bidirectional associations between family functioning and adolescent depression. Furthermore, this chapter provides an integrative framework that conceptualizes emotional functioning as a key mechanism through which family relationships and adolescent depression mutually influence one another over time.

Keywords: disrupted family functioning, family adversity, parent-child relationships, parenting behavior, adolescent depression, emotional functioning
