ABSTRACT

The objective of present study is to access the coping strategies of adolescent girls coming from low, middle and high socioeconomic status (SES). This research comprised of 201 female students who completed the Youth coping response inventory (YCRI) and Kuppuswammy Socio Economic Status scale. One Way Analysis was used to analyse the data. The results revealed significant differences among different groups of SES on diversion (F=31.625, p<.001), destructive (F=30.377, p<.001) and YCRI (F=3.220, p<.05). Implications: The study reported that individuals high on SES have positive coping strategies whereas individuals low on SES have negative coping strategies. Therefore, it is implicated that school students coming from lower SES need counselling services as they are having high rate of maladjusted coping behaviour. School management must develop programs in order to facilitate such adolescents and provide a platform with healthy competition and impartial academic growth.
