Session

Psychology

Description

Family dynamics, relationships between family members, parent-adolescent communication are important factors affecting in a positive and negative way the development of adolescents' mental health. Lack of positive parent-adolescent communication affects the onset of mental health problems, specifically depressive symptoms, low self-esteem and social anxiety. The quality of communication among family members contributes to the quality of

parent–child relationship, which in turn predicts children’s well-being (Broberg, 2012). The purpose of this research is to explore family relationships, communication features in Albanian families which become motivating in the emergence of mental health problems in adolescents 15-18 years old. Lack of open parent-child communication, denial of mental health issues by parents, lack of parental cooperation in the psychological treatment of the child, critically affect the maintenance of an unhealthy environment for the development and well-being of adolescents.
