Influence of social-emotional learning on pro-social behaviour among adolescents

Priyanka Panwar, Seema Sharma and Tejpreet K Kang
Social-emotional skills are regarded as requisite tools to navigate the life of adolescents and by fostering social-emotional learning competencies among adolescents, there may be possible chances of improvement in their pro-social behaviour. Thus, the present research aimed to study the association between social-emotional learning and pro-social behaviour among adolescents belonging to joint and nuclear families. The study was conducted on 500 adolescents in the age group of 13-14 years. The sample was randomly selected from eight government schools of Ludhiana city of Punjab and drawn purposively as per their family structure. The research instruments used were Social Emotional Competence Questionnaire (SECQ) by Zhou and Ee (2012) and Pro-social Tendencies Measures- Revised by Carlo et al. (2003). The results of the study indicated that significantly more number of adolescents from nuclear families were found at low level of overall social-emotional learning. Further, adolescents from nuclear families significantly displayed more pro-social behaviour as compared to adolescents from joint families. Furthermore, in joint families, overall social-emotional learning had non-significant correlation with overall pro-social behaviour and in nuclear families, overall social-emotional learning was found to be significantly positively correlated with overall pro-social behaviour.
