Impact of life skills training program on general well-being of high school students
The study intended to investigate the impact of life skills training on general well-being and to study the influences of demographic variables (gender and area of the school) on the effectiveness of life skills training program in increasing general well-being. In order to accomplish the aims of the present work, an intervention study has been carried with an experimental and control group. Students were screened on life skills using life skills scale and those who found to have lower scores selected for the study. Two hundred students were selected and randomly divided into an experimental and control group; however, the equal number of urban, and rural children were included maintaining the equal number of boys and girls. Hence, a total of 50 boys and 50 girls for experimental group (N=100) and 50 boys and 50 girls for control group (N=100) took part in the final study. PGI general well-being questionnaire administered at the beginning and end of the training program. The data were subjected to descriptive statistics, paired-samples t-test, and two-way analysis of covariance. The results of this study suggest that general well-being scores increased in the post-test condition after the successful completion of life skills training program among high school students. The results also suggest gender and area differences in acquiring life skills, which is females, were benefited more than male students.
