The aims of the
present study were to examinate the correlation between depression and familiar conflicts
in adolescents who live in rural or urban communities in Tlaxcala, and to identify differences
in the degree of adolescents? depression according to their gender, as well as in accordance
with the type of community (urban or rural) in which they live. The Family Environment
Scale (FES) and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) were used to evaluate 342 participants
with a mean age of 13.4 years. Analysis of data was accomplished by Pearson`s correlation
coefficient and variance analysis ANOVA. Results show that depression was found to be
negatively related to the family cohesion. Also, based in the ANOVA, results show that
only the effects of relation were significant.
