Emotional Self-Efficacy, Adolescent, Students


Emotional self-efficacy   is an accumulation of beliefs that serve as a necessary set of close predictors of human motivation, diligence, and success. The present study aims to study the level of emotional self-efficacy and the difference in adolescent students with respect to family type, type of school and residential status. Findings of the study revealed an average level of emotional self-efficacy. No significant difference in emotional self-efficacy between single and joint family, government and private school adolescent, hosteller and dayscholar adolescent students was found. Some of the reasons that students were found to have no difference are that students were treated equally and provided opportunities to express their thoughts and ideas. They were not judged partially and thus no emotional conflict was there. So a proper environment was there for development. Students are also engaged in extra- curricular activities to have interaction with each other and build a good relationship with is an attribute to self-efficacy.
