AbstraktThe project investigates the development of psychological strains that adolescents are confronted with in terms of age specific developmental tasks according to Havighurst. The development of personal resources that aid in coping with such developmental tasks is outlined. In accordance with the “resources of productive problem solving” model (Fend, 2001) individual coping resources of adolescents, such as self-efficacy, as well as action orientation in response to failure were assessed.Additionally, we investigated coping styles (active coping, internal coping, avoidant coping) of adolescents who are confronted with conflicts and situations bearing relation to three central developmental tasks.
MethodeThe development of named characteristics was researched amongst two populations: (a) adolescent participants of different workshops for promoting personal resources (n > 100) and (b) adolescents that did not participate in any intervention (n = 240). Longitudinal data of the participants are available across four points of measurement – altogether these points of measurement span the period of one year.
ErgebnisseEmpiric results for both groups reflect the extent and the development of the aforementioned characteristics. In this sense, comparing the development of both groups yields results in terms of the summative evaluation of the conducted workshops. The workshops were primarily effective in enhancing self-efficacy, reducing avoidant coping, and improving coverage of the developmental task "building-up friendships".
