Purpose: The study was done to influence of family function and degree of depression on impulsive behavior in adolescents.
Method: Using convenience sampling 780 adolescents were recruited from October 29 and November 9, 2011. Data were collected using self-report questionnaires which included items on general characteristics, family function, depression, and impulsive behavior. Data were analyzed using t-test, ANOVA, Scheffe test, Pearson Correlation Coefficient, and hierarchical regression analysis.
Results: The major findings of this study were as follow; 1) There was a significant negative relationship between family function and impulsive behavior (r=-.236, p<.001) and a positive relationship between depression and impulsive behavior (r=.342, p<.001). 2) Factors with a significant negative association with impulsive behavior were higher school records (${beta}$=-.112, p<.001) and family function: positive resolution of family problems (${beta}$=-.213, p=.008), while a significant positive association was found for unsatisfactory school life (${beta}$=.103, p=.016), family function: emotional reactivity (${beta}$=.159, p=.028), and depression (${beta}$=.301, p<.001). These variables explained 20.1% of variance for impulsive behavior.
Conclusion: The results of this study identify a relationship between family function, depression, and impulsive behavior in adolescents indicating variables to be addressed to reduce impulsive behavior. These variables can be used in developing intervention programs.
