Course Description: Depression becomes more prevalent during early adulthood. Although many risk factors for depression during this time period have been identified, few studies have examined combinations of risk factors. The present study focused on risk factors for depression among first-year college students in Canada. The results of self-report surveys indicated that the absence of personal goals was most strongly associated with depressive symptoms, followed by anxiety, dysfunctional thoughts about success, and five additional risk factors. The results suggest that multimodal interventions are needed to support college students at risk of depression.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Distinguish among the risk factors that are known to be associated with depression among emerging adults
  2. Describe the study's findings concerning the relative importance of eight risk factors linked to depressive symptoms among college students
  3. Integrate the strengths and weaknesses of the study, and summarize the clinical implications for the prevention and treatment of depression in college students
