A Study To Determine the Effects of the Negative Aspects of Students Enabling Their Peers.
Hall, Deborah Morgan
The purpose of this research was to determine the effects of educating students on the negative aspects of enabling their peers. Enabling is any action taken by a concerned person that removes or softens the effect of a harmful consequence. For this study, 24 students (21 females) who were characterized as "Natural Helper" students at a rural, isolated, low-income high school, had their enabling behavior measured. The control group comprised 12 students; the experimental group comprised 12 students as well. The evaluation data indicated that the students' practice of enabling decreased after the implementation of education, although at one level of significance, the two groups showed no significant differences. The males in the experimental group seemed to benefit more from the education program than did the females. Statistical findings for the experimental group suggest that the males were enabling more than the females at the beginning and end of the study. (RJM)
