Abstract: Current theoretical models of depression have been developed with the adult depressive in mind. Little attention has been given to the appropriateness of extending these theoretical formulations to the depressed child. Since disturbances in the child's social environment have been implicated as one of the best predictors of difficulties in psychological adjustment later in life, it seems important to take a closer look at those models of adult depression that emphasize the depressive's social context. The present study used Lewinsohn's and Coyne's models of adult depression as frameworks with which to investigate the social interactions of depressed children.
