Background: Existing studies of depression and family functioning have used western samples to examine how depression and impaired family functioning are related, and to explore levels of discrepancy between depressed patients and their family members. The purpose of the current study is to explore these questions in a Chinese sample. Method: This study examined the association between family functioning and depression in a Chinese sample of 60 depressed patients and their family members and 60 non-clinical controls and their family members. The study evaluated levels of agreement between family members on a self-report measure of family functioning (Family Assessment Device) using reliability statistics. It also compared families’ self-reported family functioning to that of a trained observer using an observational rating scale (McMaster Clinical Rating Scale). Results: Results indicate poorer family functioning among Chinese families with a depressed family member, high to moderate agreement between patients and family members, moderate to low agreement between non-clinical participants and their family members, and moderate correlations between subjective and objective ratings of family functioning in a mainland Chinese sample. Conclusions: As in other cultures, depression is associated with impaired family functioning in Chinese families. There is good agreement between family members and a trained evaluator about the family impairments. The Family Assessment Device and the McMaster Clinical Rating Scale are useful for assessing family functioning in Chinese families.

Previous research suggests that depression and family functioning are related, and that women and men may differ in how they respond to and cope with depression. Significantly less attention has been paid to whether gender moderates the relationship between family functioning and depression. In the current study, the relationship between depression severity and perceived family functioning, both generally and in specific areas, was examined in women and men (n = 117) hospitalized with major depr...

Background: Despite the increased risk of depression and conduct problems in children of depressed parents, the mechanism by which parental depression affects their children’s behavioral and emotional functioning is not well understood. The present study was undertaken to determine whether parental depression represents a genuine environmental risk factor in children’s psychopathology, or whether children’s depression/conduct can be explained as a secondary consequence of the genetic liability t...

Abstract There is strong evidence that family factors play a role in the development, maintenance and course of youth depression. However, to date few clinical trials of psychotherapy for youth depression employ family therapy interventions or target the known family risk factors. This is surprising given recent meta-analytic findings showing only modest effect sizes for psychotherapy for youth depression, and that cognitive therapies do not outperform non-cognitive therapies. The aim of this re...

Objective: To review the recent literature on the prevention of clinical diagnoses of depression in children and adolescents. Method: Several preventive intervention programs targeting depressive diagnoses in youth were reviewed. These programs based their prevention strategies on cognitive-behavioural and (or) interpersonal approaches, which have been found to be helpful in the treatment of depression. In addition, family-based prevention strategies were reviewed. Also, nonspecific risk factors...

Although recent evidence implicates the importance of the family for understanding depressive disorders during adolescence, we still lack a coherent framework for understanding the way in which the myriad of developmental changes occurring within early adolescents and their family environments actually operate to increase adolescents' vulnerability to, or to protect them from, the development of depressive disorders. In this review we propose a framework that places the mechanisms and processes ...

Within a sample of patients with major depressive disorder (MDD; n = 121) and bipolar affective disorder (BPAD; n = 69), the authors examined (a) diagnostic differences in family functioning at acute episode, (b) diagnostic differences in family functioning at episode recovery, (c) within-group changes in family functioning from acute episode to recovery, and (d) whether within-group changes from acute episode to recovery varied by diagnosis. Using a multidimensional model, the authors evaluated...

ABSTRACT Objective To obtain preliminary evidence of the feasibility and effectiveness of adjunctive family psychoeducation in adolescent major depressive disorder. Method Participants were from outpatient clinics in Hamilton and London, Ontario. Over 24 months, 41 adolescents ages 13 through 18 years meeting major depressive disorder criteria were recruited (31 in Hamilton, 10 in London). Participants were randomized to usual treatment or usual treatment plus family psychoeducation. Outcome mea...

Two modalities of family assessment based on the McMaster Model of Family Functioning (MMFF), including a self-report questionairre (Family Assessment Device-FAD) and a clinical interview (McMaster Structured Interview For Families-McSIFF) as scored on the McMaster Clinical Rating Scale (MCRS) were compared in an attempt to explore the inter-changeability of the two. Significant correlations were hypothesized between the FAD and MCRS in both prospective and retrospective groups and that correlat...

Method From 1986 to 1988, 3,419 seventh through ninth graders were screened with the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale. The top decile scorers and a random sample of the remainder were interviewed using the Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia for School-Age Children ( n = 581). Follow-up interviews were completed 6 years later (...

Abstract This study aims at investigating the characteristics of family functioning in Chinese first-episode major depressive disorder (FE-MDD) patients and its relationship with major depressive episode (MDE) duration. We recruited 63 FE-MDD families and 59 healthy comparison (HC) families from WuHan Mental Health Center and its nearby communities from September 2014 to August 2016. Family functioning was assessed by the Chinese version of Family Assessment Device (FAD). After baseline assessme...

ABSTRACTIntroduction: Comorbidity of other psychiatric disorders is a common issue in individuals with substance use disorder (SUDs); this phenomenon is known as co-occurring disorders (CODs). Previous studies have pointed that CODs are strongly associated with familial difficulties. There are CODs where the association between family function and COD remains unknown. The objective of this study was to analyze the relation between CODs and family functioning in a sample of individuals with SUDs ...

This study tested the feasibility and outcomes of a brief psychoeducational intervention for family members of depressed veterans in primary care. Family members of veterans enrolled in TIDES, a VA collaborative care programme for depression in primary care, were invited to participate. High enrolment rates, high treatment retention and completion, and high levels of satisfaction with the intervention indicate that the programme is feasible and acceptable to family members. Veterans showed a dec...

Abstract Background Family function, which improves individual resilience and strongly link to quality of life (QOL) among the elderly, increases the risk of depression. Because of these demonstrated relationships, it can be hypothesized that both depression and resilience are mediators of the association between family function and QOL. Methods To test this hypothesis, the structural equation model (SEM) constructed by Amos 21.0 was employed to assess the indirect effect of depression (Geriatri...
