A key requirement of resilience is the presence of both risks and promotive factors that either help bring about a positive outcome or reduce or avoid a negative outcome. It focuses on understanding healthy development in spite of risk exposure. A focus on individual resilience and adjustment adoption is important in communities vulnerable to highly disruptive and destructive hazard activity that can temporarily incapacitate institutional resources. When this disruption occurs, individuals will be responsible for their safety and well-being until institutional recourses recover. The major objective of the present study was to assess and compare the resilience and adjustment of adolescents. For this purpose was resilience scale by Annalakshmi (2011)and Adjustment Inventory (Asthana, 1988). was administered on 100 adolescents. Result reveals that there is no significant difference between boys and girls on resilience but significant difference found between boys and girls on the label of adjustment. Result further show the significant relationship between resilience and adjustment for boys and girls.

Abstract


A key requirement of resilience is the presence of both risks and promotive factors that either help bring about a positive outcome or reduce or avoid a negative outcome. It focuses on understanding healthy development in spite of risk exposure. A focus on individual resilience and adjustment adoption is important in communities vulnerable to highly disruptive and destructive hazard activity that can temporarily incapacitate institutional resources. When this disruption occurs, individuals will be responsible for their safety and well-being until institutional recourses recover. The major objective of the present study was to assess and compare the resilience and adjustment of adolescents. For this purpose was resilience scale by Annalakshmi (2011)and Adjustment Inventory (Asthana, 1988). was administered on 100 adolescents. Result reveals that there is no significant difference between boys and girls on resilience but significant difference found between boys and girls on the label of adjustment. Result further show the significant relationship between resilience and adjustment for boys and girls.
