Abstract:
The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among hardiness, social support, depression, and behavioral repertoire. One-hundred-sixty-five college students participated in the study. The hypothesis that hardiness and social support influence severity of depression and behavioral repertoire, and that depression is also causally related to behavioral repertoire was not supported. Instead, a parsimonious version of the initial hypothesized model was found to be a good representation of the data. The preferred model suggests that the personality characteristic, hardiness, is causally related to severity of depression, and furthermore, that social support directly influences behavioral repertoire. The findings are discussed in light of how they augment previous research and suggest new avenues for future research and practice.
