Nursing science and practice has become interested in the concept of resiliency in adolescents. Resiliency is a multifaceted, multidimensional, interactional process that promotes as well as compromises health. The purpose of this study was to determine if (a)certain protective factors, such as healthy coping, social support and self efficacy were positively associated with resilience in adolescents and if (b)risk factors such as psychological distress, anger, hopelessness, a negative worlview and unhealthy coping were negatively associated with resilience in adolescents. A survey design was used with a convenience sample of 88 adolescents (ages 14-18) recruited from a variety of school and youth group settings in a Midwestern metropolitan area. Subjects completed the Resiliency Scale, Life Events Checklist, Brief Symptom Inventory, Anger Scale, Self-Efficacy Scale, Social Support Scale, the Carolina Adolescent Coping Scale, the WorldView Survey, and the Hopelessness Scale for Children. A statistically significant negative correlation (r=-.320, p=.001) existed between anger and resiliency. A statistically significant positive correlation (r=.204, p. 028) was found between healthy coping and resiliency. These findings suggest that certain protective factors can moderate resiliency in adolescents. Further research on these factors can determine if intervention programs can be initiated to build resiliency in adolescents.
