Celik, Seher Balci
Educational Research and Reviews, v8 n12 p832-837 Jun 2013
The purpose of this study is to reveal whether university students' level of resilience differ by gender and attitude toward grief, and to identify to what extent resilience predicts attitude toward grief. 259 students studying at Ondokuz Mayis University participated in the study. The average age of the participants was 20.27 plus or minus 1.19. Two scales were used for data collection. "The Attitude to Grief Scale" was used to determine attitudes towards grief, and "The Resilience Scale" was used to identify resilience. Pearson's Product-Moment Correlation, linear regression analysis, and t-test were used in data analysis. The findings suggest that resilience is related to grief (-0.58, p less than 0.001). Whether resilience was a predictor of attitude toward grief was tested through regression analysis. Resilience was found to be a significant predictor of attitude toward grief (R[superscript 2] = 0.346). The results of this study indicated that resilience scores of the students did not significantly differ by gender.
