Abstract

Examined relationships among depression, active coping, and social support in a sample of 109 African American and 57 Latinos with disabilities. Measures included Beck and Beck (1972) short version of the Depression Inventory, Brandt and Weinert's (1981, 1987) Personal Resources Questionnaire (PRQ), and the condensed version of Tyler's (1978) Behavioral Attributes of Psychosocial Competence Scale (Zea, Reisen, & Tyler, 1996). Findings indicated that active coping, satisfaction with social support, and type of disability were significant predictors of depression for African Americans, whereas active coping, perception of severity of disability, and social support were significant predictors of depression for Latinos. These findings underscore the importance of testing separate models for African Americans and Latinos.
