Abstract

Introduction: The aim of this study was to predict depression on the basis of family communication dimensions with the mediation of cognitive flexibility.                                                                                     Materials and Methods: In this correlational study, 390 students (201 girls and 189 boys) constructed the sample group. �They were selected from 2nd grade of high schools in Shiraz in the academic year of 2015-16 through randomized multi-stage cluster sampling style. To measure the research variables, Fitzpatrick and Ritchie's family communication patterns (RFCP), Dennis and Van der Wal's cognitive flexibility (CFI) and Beck depression-second edition (BDI-II) inventories were used. Pearson correlation coefficient and path analysis by SPSS 22 and AMOS 20 were used to analyze research data. Results:The results of path analysis indicated that the conversation orientation has direct negative effect (P=0.005) and an indirect effect through the mediation of cognitive flexibility (P=0.001) on depression. Also conformity orientation had only direct and positive effect (P=0.001) on depression. Conclusion: In overall, the results of this study showed that cognitive flexibility plays mediating role in the relationship between conversation orientation and depression.
