Profile of Behaviorally Resilient Adolescents: Confirmation and Extension.
Gordon, Kimberly A.; And Others
This study compared resilient adolescents to their non-resilient peers to assess the students' relative risk for engaging in behavioral, affective, somatic/health, and nutritional risks. Data was collected in the form of a self-administered Health Behaviors questionnaire from junior high school students (n=1,394) in grades 7-9, in two different schools. Results showed that the resilient subjects' behaviors and emotions differed significantly from those of their non-resilient peers. Further, the general pattern is such that it supports the conclusion that resilient adolescents engage in less psychosocially at-risk behaviors. At the same time; however, they are not as free from troublesome behavior and emotions as their normal peers. Two tables are included at the end of this document which provide comparisons and odds ratios of resilient subjects to non-resilient subjects. Contains 26 references. (SR)
