Relationships Among Rumination, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Depression in Thai University Students

Abstract

In Thailand, depression and suicide attempts have been increasingly reported in undergraduates. Their causes are indicated, for example, as interpersonal problems, stress from study and intrapersonal thinking styles. However, there are some protective factors which worth the consideration. The current study, hence, aimed to explore the relationships that rumination, mindfulness and acceptance had with depression. Data were collected in two hundred and twenty five undergraduates who responded to four relevant questionnaires. Data obtained were subsequently analyzed using multiple regression analyses. Results indicated that all of these variables significantly predicted depression with the overall model fit (R2) being 0.34. Rumination was significantly associated with depression (B = .142, p <.05) and other protective factors, mindfulness and acceptance, were also significant (B = -.195, p <.05; B = .397, p <.001, respectively)
