ESPINOZA SOTELO, Joan Carlos. Depression and aggressiveness in the context of COVID - 19: impact of the pandemic on university students. Revista San Gregorio [online]. 2023, vol.1, n.53, pp.185-199. ISSN 2528-7907.

Mental health in people is essential to be able to have an optimal life, however, after the pandemic, there have been evidences of crisis states in depression and violence that have increased today. The objective of this study was to determine the relationship between aggression and depression in university students during the COVID-19 pandemic. The research was descriptive, correlational with a cross-sectional design using the hypothetical deductive method. The sample consisted of 95 university students. The instruments used to collect the data were the Buss and Perry aggressiveness questionnaire; likewise Beck's Depression Inventory - II that was adapted by Espinosa. It was submitted, for its validation under the criterion of content validity, to the evaluation by expert judgment; and to measure reliability, Cronbach's Alpha coefficient was used. To contrast the general hypothesis, the non-parametric Spearman's Rho statistic was applied and a score of .437 was obtained between aggressiveness and depression. The correlation between physical aggressiveness and depression was .298, between verbal aggressiveness and depression it was .298, between anger and depression it was .437 and finally between hostility and depression it was .440. It was concluded that aggression and its dimensions are significantly and weakly related to depression.
