Resilience means potentiality of a person to come back to normal working environment or conditions and survive from the threat or difficult phase of life which can be dangerous. A judgement of resilience requires that an individual has faced a significant risk or threat to well-being. Without a demonstrated risk, it is difficult to assess resilience. The present study was designed to unravel the difference in resource index and vulnerability index of resilience among girls studying in co-ed and all- girls school. The study adopted a cross sectional research design. The desired sample of 120 school going girls (60 co-ed & 60 all-girls school) in 12th grade was obtained by employing purposive and convenience sampling. Resiliency Scale for Children and Adolescents developed by Sandra Prince-Embury in 2006 was employed for data collection and determining participant's resilience and vulnerability result. The data was analysed by using t-test as statistical tool. Results revealed that there was as such no significant difference between both the groups but the mean score difference indicated that resources index was better among co-ed girls and girls in all- girls school were found to be more vulnerable.

Abstract


Resilience means potentiality of a person to come back to normal working environment or conditions and survive from the threat or difficult phase of life which can be dangerous. A judgement of resilience requires that an individual has faced a significant risk or threat to well-being. Without a demonstrated risk, it is difficult to assess resilience. The present study was designed to unravel the difference in resource index and vulnerability index of resilience among girls studying in co-ed and all- girls school. The study adopted a cross sectional research design. The desired sample of 120 school going girls (60 co-ed & 60 all-girls school) in 12th grade was obtained by employing purposive and convenience sampling. Resiliency Scale for Children and Adolescents developed by Sandra Prince-Embury in 2006 was employed for data collection and determining participant's resilience and vulnerability result. The data was analysed by using t-test as statistical tool. Results revealed that there was as such no significant difference between both the groups but the mean score difference indicated that resources index was better among co-ed girls and girls in all- girls school were found to be more vulnerable.
