Selected Variables and a Self-Management Program with Adolescents.
Junk, Eva Marie
This study was conducted to investigate selected variables and a self-management program with adolescents. The independent variables were group participation status, gender, cumulative grade point average, family structure, and perception of family. The dependent variables were scores from the Youth Behavior Inventory for Student, Youth Behavior Inventory for Parent, Youth Behavior Inventory for Teacher, What Would You Do If? and Self-Concept Inventory. The participants in the study were 38 high school students, 19 of whom participated in the 15-session self-management program and 19 of whom served as a control group. Students, parents, and teachers were administered relevant measures before and after the self-management program participation. The findings revealed that males rated themselves higher than did females on the Youth Behavior Inventory for Students. The findings suggest that there was no association between effectiveness of the self-management program and student participant status, grade point average, family structure, or perception of family. The only significant findings involved gender, such that males had a higher change in selected reported behaviors than did females. (NB)
