C. Sarika

Abstract


In a society that is being transformed by technological advancements, our capacity for adaptation and adjustment, is the one quality that will be most needed for effective and successful living. In adjustment the needs of the individual on one hand, and the claims of the environment on the other are fully satisfied i.e., the harmony between the individual and social environment. Life adjustment is considered to be a balance between personal and social adjustment. Psychologists have pointed out the importance of adjustment to various situations for the proper development of personality structure. All research studies have established beyond doubt that children who come from homes that have been broken by death of parents, divorce, separation, physical or mental handicaps are often more maladjusted than children from more stable homes. In this era of chaos and complexities a deep understanding of the area “personal adjustment‟ mechanism of high school students needs to be recognized as an essential element of the educational progress. The present study was intended to develop a tool for assessing personal adjustment among the high school students.
