Objective: The main goal of this research was to examine the cognitive (attribution) models of depression in adolescent students.
Method: In this research 388 high school students (222 females and 166 males) from the city of Rey were selected using stratified random sampling. The subjects completed Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), Negative Life Event Questionnaire (NLEQ) and Attribution Style Questionnaire (ASQ). Data were analyzed using exploratory factor analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, path analysis and structural equation modeling by SPSS and LlSREL softwares.
Results: Findings showed that among the three attribution models of depression, onset model and sign model showed an acceptable goodness of fit for the explanation of depression whereas vulnerability model did not show a good fit with the data.
Conclusion: The findings of this research support the onset and sign models of depression.
