Sažetak
The aim of the study was to investigate the predictability of the war experiences, perceived available social support (instrumental support ; support to self-esteem ; belonging and accepting) and extraversion on the level of depressive symptoms for boys and girls in early adolescence. the following instruments were used to assess the variables: Questionnaire on Children's Stressful and Traumatic War Experiences (RSTI) (Barath et. al. 1993), Reynolds Adolescent Depression Scale (RADS) (Reynolds, 1986), Junior Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ-Junior) (Eysenck et al. 1994) and Interpersonal Support Evaluation List (ISEL) (Cohen et al., 1983) adapted and revised (Brajša-Žganec, 1997). The sample consisted of 583 children, both boys and girls, (aged 12 to 15 years) ; 281 children were displaced children from different parts of Croatia, who have been displaced for approximately 3.5 years. The results suggest that girls have more instrumental social support, support to self-esteem and more depressive symptoms than boys. Regression analyses showed that many war experiences are related to more depressive symptoms for boys only. More perceived available social support (instrumental support, support to self-esteem, belonging and accepting) for boys, (instrumental support and self-esteem) for girls are related to less depressive symptoms. The used predictors on boys account for 35% of the variance in the depression results and on girls account for 26% of the variance in the depressions results. Extraversion is not a predictor of depression in the set of variables. These findings are discussed according to the long term effects of war, particularly for boys.
