SALIRROSAS-ALEGRIA, Cristopher  and  SAAVEDRA-CASTILLO, Javier. Perception of some parenting styles and depression in adults. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2014, vol.77, n.3, pp.160-167. ISSN 0034-8597.

Objectives: To evaluate the relationship between perceived parenting styles and some depressive episode in adults. Method: This is a descriptive, cross-sectional study based on data from the Epidemiological Study of Mental Health of the Peruvian coast which included 6555 adults; relating parenting styles with depressive episode using independence tests for complex samples, adjusting multiple logistic regression models. Results: Relationship between warmth (OR 0.89; CI 0.83-0.97) and rejection and control (OR 1.21; CI 1.04-1.40) with the presence of depressive episode at some point in life was found. The rejection and control (OR 1.34 CI 1.08-1.68) and parental overprotection (OR 1.21 CI 1.01-1.44) relate to suicidal ideation, whereas rejection and control (OR 1.54 CI 1.10-2.16 relate to suicide attempts. The rejection and control (OR 1.40 CI 1.13-1.74) and favoritism (OR 1.44 CI 1.15-1.79) related to psychiatric comorbidity. Conclusions: The warmth in childhood, parental rejection, control, overprotection and favoritism could be related to depression throughout life, while the rejection, control, overprotection and favoritism could be related to comorbid depression with suicidal risk.
