dc.description.abstractAlthough there are certainly other contributing factors that predispose poor women to depression, the way in which false classist assumptions contribute to depression in poor single mothers has been largely neglected in the psychological literature. No research has quantifiably linked the problem of stigmatizing with depression. When stigmatization and depression are connected in the literature, stigmatization is simply listed as a contributing factor. Thus, there is a great need for future research to focus on the specific effects of stigmatization as it contributes to depression in poor single mothers. From a theoretical standpoint, this paper will integrate available research on classism, depression, and self-efficacy to propose that stigmatization creates one pathway that can lead to depression in poor single mothers. Because methods have been developed to alleviate depression and to combat stigmatization, the paper will conclude by suggesting practical solutions to prevent and diminish depressive symptoms in poor single mothers.
