Author(s): KM Sangma and PB Khadi
Resiliency refers to the ability to withstand and emerge without serious harm from the experience of adversity. The influence of peer status on resiliency and vulnerability in children in late childhood was studied on a sample of 310 children 145 from Dharwad, Karnataka and 165 from Tura, Meghalaya. The samples were drawn by sociometry with five each peer rejected and accepted. Child’s resiliency was assessed by using Embury’s (2006) scale. Results revealed a significant association between socio-metric status and sub component of a sense of mastery i.e., self-efficacy and support (sense of relatedness) among Tura children. No significant association was found between Dharwad children and sub components of resiliency.
