Abstract

Social stress occurring during adolescence is considered a risk factor for the development of adolescent depressive symptoms. However, the specific mechanisms through which social stress may affect depressive symptoms are not well-established. The current prospective study considered hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis reactivity and social problem-solving deficits occurring in response to an acute interpersonally themed stressor as longitudinal predictors of depressive symptoms. Sixty-two adolescents (ages 12-16; 73% female) were recruited using oversampling techniques intended to include adolescents with a wide rang.
