The relationships among depression, locus of control and assertiveness
The etiology of depression, maintenance factors and methods of treatment continue to receive considerable research attention. This study compared the relationships among depression, locus of control, and assertiveness. Results indicated a highly significant correlation between depression and an external locus of control orientation. Depression and assertiveness were also found to be negatively correlated at a statistically significant level. No significant relationship between assertiveness and locus of control was found. Gender differences were found for depression only, with women exhibiting higher levels of depression. Treatment and prevention implications are also briefly discussed.
