Abstract


Alcoholism is a family disease it ruins not only to the particular individual but also the whole family. Family disruptions, domestic violence resulting juvenile problems, add up to a significant proportion of loss to society and nation's well-being and economy. Alcohol plays a major role in more than half of all accidents, suicides and early deaths. Alcoholic families have to face a lot of turmoil and struggle even when the alcoholic person is alive or after death; children are at the most vulnerable situation in the family. Children of alcoholic appear at increase risk for a variety of negative outcomes as substance abuse, antisocial behaviour depression, anxiety disorders, delinquent behavior, etc. Objectives of the study is to investigate and compare the self-efficacy and well-being in adolescent children of alcoholics (COAs) and those of non-alcoholic (nCOAs) and other one is to bring out the association or relationship between self-efficacy and well-being of children of alcoholics (COAs) and children of non-alcoholics (nCOAs). The sample is consisted of 600 respondents of the age range 14-18 from different schools of Kanpur city. 300 children are from alcoholic families and 300 children from non-alcoholic families. Snow ball sampling is used for data collection. General self-efficacy scale and PGl General well being measure were used for measuring self efficacy and well being of adolescent children, t and correlation statistics has been used for analyzing the data. Results indicated that children of alcoholics have lower self- efficacy and well-being in comparison to children of non-alcoholics. Results further inferred that there is a positive correlation between self-efficacy and well-being. Due to unhealthy environment, children of alcoholic families have some negative impact on their personal and academic life.
