This study examined the mediating effect of rejection sensitivity in the relationship between dispositional self-focused attention and depression in upper elementary school students. The participants of this study were 501 elementary students (245 boys and 256 girls) aged 10 to 12 years who enrolled in eight elementary schools located in Seoul, Incheon and Gyeong-gi province. To measure the research variables, the Children’s Depression Inventory, the Scale for Dispositional Self-focused Attention Social situation(Lee & Kwon, 2005), and the Children’s Rejection Sensitivity Questionnaire were used. Also, structural equation modeling (SEM) was used to investigate the mediating model. The results of this study were as follows. First, the levels of dispositional self-focused attention and the rejection sensitivity both increased the level of students’ depression. Second, the rejection sensitivity partially mediated the relationship between their dispositional self-focused attention and depression. In conclusion, the higher the level of dispositional self-focused attention, the higher the level of rejection sensitivity, and consequently, the higher the elementary school student’s depression. These results suggested that reducing the level of dispositional self-focused attention and rejection sensitivity would play a significant role in alleviating their depression.
