ABSTRACT

The purpose of the study was to examine the relationship between anxiety, depression and adolescent’s emotional adjustment among secondary students. The sample consists of total 100 students (out of hundred 50 male and 50 female) within age range of 16 to 18 years. Generalized Anxiety Disorder scale (GAD-7), Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9), and Adolescent’s Emotional Adjustment Inventory (AEAI), were directly administered to all the respondents. The data were analysed by using descriptive statistics i.e. Mean, SD, Pearson product moment correlation and stepwise multiple regression analysis. The results revealed significant positive correlation between anxiety and depression (r = .65, p<.01), and adolescent’s emotional adjustment (r = .58, p<.01) among students. Regression analysis finds the generalized anxiety (R2 = .34, p<.001) potent predictive factor which accounts 34% of variance in emotional adjustment among secondary students.
