ABSTRACT:
Assertiveness and self-esteem in adolescents are the instruments for expressing themselves without any psychological disturbances in different situations. It is essential for a better emotional wellbeing and to maintain socially supportive relationships. Aim of the study: to assess the correlation between the assertive behaviour and self-esteem among adolescent girls. Methodology: A descriptive correlation survey research design was adopted for the collecting data from fifty adolescent girls from a selected college, Vellore district, Tamil Nadu, India using purposive sampling technique. Rathus Assertiveness Schedule and Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale were used to assess the assertive behaviour and self-esteem in adolescent girls. The data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: Majority of the adolescent girls were somewhat assertive 26(52 %) and 11(22%) of them had assertive, 44 (88%) and 5(10%) had average and high self-esteem. A significant positive Spearman’s Rank Order correlation (rs=0.6667) was found between the assertive behaviour and self-esteem of the adolescent girls. Significant associations were found between the assertive scores with the religion, occupation status of father and type of family (x2 =14.3, 18.3 and 16.8). Significant associations were found between the levels of self esteem scores with the age, family monthly income, education and occupation status of father (x2 =14.1, 13.4 16.1, and 14.9). The adolescent girls occupation status of father was the only variable significantly associated between the assertive behavior and levels of self-esteem scores.
