The purpose of this study is to examine the predictive effect of life
satisfaction and loneliness level of adolescents with divorced parents on resilience.
The study has been carried out on 144 adolescents, 75 of whom are female and 69
are male, and whose parents are officially divorced. The study group consisted
of students who are attending different types of high schools in the city of
Bolu central districts. Loneliness Scale, Life Satisfaction Scale and
Adolescents Resilience Scales were utilized in the data collection process.
Pearson Moment Correlation and Multiple Regression analyses were used in data
analysis. The results revealed that, while there was a positive relationship
between resilience and life satisfaction, a strong negative relationship was
found between their resilience and loneliness level of the adolescents whose
parents are divorced. Regression analysis revealed that, while loneliness was a
significant predictor on resilience, life satisfaction was not a significant
predictor of resilience. The findings of this research were discussed within
the scope of the related literature.
was to understand what representations Italian adolescents have about the
dialogue and the relationship with their parents and with the peer group, as
well as to evaluate any differences. We interviewed 400 Italian adolescents,
200 males and 200 females, aged between 14 and 19 years. The instruments used
were an ad hoc questionnaire and a free story. The results show significant
differences in the communicative/relational support by parents and by the peer
group, especially in relation to the confidences of their personal problems,
the choice autonomy and the behaviors that encourage independence.
