Ladan Mohammadizadeh and Fariborz Bagheri

The main aim of the present study is to get a model of various styles of child-nurturing patterns on the identity crisis, anxiety and depression. Based on the present study hypothesis, depression and anxiety are the consequences of the identity crisis being affected from child-nurturing patterns. The statistical sample of the study is 209 boy and girl of four Tehran districts based on an accidental sampling method. To get the data, Bamrind questionnaire, personal identity crisis test, Zung anxiety test and Beck depression test were applied efficiently. The results showed that there is a significant relationship between the styles of child-nurturing, identity crisis and depression, anxiety correlation in this regard. Also, the obtained model represents the relationship between the variables showing a dictatorship child-nurturing from the four dimensions of identity; that is, long term targets, moral value system, religious identity and job satisfaction which were represented in the research hypothesis; the findings also indicated that there is a direct relationship between the child-nurturing styles and anxiety and depression; the structural model also showed that an independent structure of child-nurturing style predicts the variance of the anxiety structure and two styles of easy-going child-nurturing anticipate the fluctuation of the structure as well. And also the data indicate the fact that identity crisis has a significant relationship with anxiety and depression and the structural model show the existence of relationship between the anxiety and depression with two dimensions out of four identity crisis dimensions; that is, long term targets and religious identity.
