Abstract

Objective To explore the mediating role of rumination in the life events of adolescents and the value doubt of junior middle school students. Methods 968 junior high school students in Nanjing were investigated by using the Scales of Value of Learning(SVL), Ruminative Response scale(RRS) and Adolescent Self-rating Life Events Checklist(ASLEC). Results Life events were significantly correlated with learning value doubt, rumination and the three dimensions of rumination (forced thinking, introspection and symptomatic rumination). The symptom rumination dimension of rumination plays a mediating role between life events and learning value doubt, and the mediating value should account for 40% of the total effect. Conclusion Life events can affect the doubt of learning value through symptom rumination, which reflects the effect of symptom rumination on enhancing the doubt of learning value. Psychological intervention related to depression for junior high school students can help alleviate the doubt of learning value of junior high school students.
