OLIVEIRA, Lorena de Melo Mendonça  y  RESENDE, Ana Cristina. Study of Depressive Symptoms in Children under Institutional Care. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2016, vol.10, n.1, pp. 55-63. ISSN 1982-1247.

The main target of this study was to investigate depressive and behavioral symptoms in children under institutional care, situation through CDI and CBCL.  Fifty male and female children took part in this study. These children were between seven and eleven years old, divided in two groups: 23 were institutionalized children (GI), and 27 were children, similar to the G1 in terms of age and years of education, who lived with their family (GF). The results showed that the GI children showed the CBCL - significantly greater mean score on the scale of externalizing problems (M=88,78; SD=19,71) and CDI - average score significantly higher depressive symptoms (M=12,61; SD= 6,28). In general, association was found between depressive symptoms and externalizing behavior (r = 0,43; p<0,05).
