Relational triplet: Vital satisfaction, social support and depression in cancer female breast
This work aimed to evaluate the relationship between life satisfaction and social support and the impact of these parameters in depression in women with breast cancer.
Patients and methods: The sample of this study is composed of 96 Moroccan women. The participants completed a questionnaire composed of 3 scales measuring the variables of interest, adapted and validated for the Moroccan population (Scale of vital satisfaction: Diener, Emmons, Larsen and Griffin, 1985/ Social Support Perception Scale: Vaux, Phillips, Holly, Thompson, Williams, & Stewart, 1986/ The Beck Depression Inventory: BDI-II; developed by Beck et al., 1996)
• The level of life satisfaction became significantly with the evolution of the disease (duration and stage).
• Women who express lower levels of life satisfaction suffer from higher levels of depression.
• Women who have a high level of social support are protected against the negative effect of a decrease in life satisfaction on depression.
