RODRIGUEZ-FERNANDEZ, Arantzazu; RAMOS-DIAZ, Estibaliz; ROS, Iker  and  FERNANDEZ-ZABALA, Arantza. Relaciones de la resiliencia con el autoconcepto y el Apoyo Social Percibido en una muestra de adolescentesRelations of Resilience to self-concept and perceived social support in a sample of adolescents. Acción psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.12, n.2, pp.1-14. ISSN 2255-1271.

The scientific study of resilience is a subject of great interest in the field of psychology to provide a new and positive view of human development. To promote adolescent adjustment, is necessary to determine individual and contextual factors that influence resilience during the developmental stage of adolescence. The objective of this study was to analyze the relations between resilience and variables such as self-concept and social support; and to identify variables that predict resilience. The sample is made up of 1250 adolescents (M=13.72, SD=1.09). Three assessment instruments were administered: The Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC), the Dimensional Self-Concept Questionnaire (AUDIM), the Perceived Social Support from Family and Friends Questionnaire (AFA) and the Teacher Social Suppport Scale (HBSC-2006). Positive correlations between self-concept and social support with resilience were founded. Test scores of self-concept and social support varied depending of the level of resilience. Self-concept and social support were predictor variables of resilience.

Keywords : resilience; self-concept; perceived social support; adolescence; positive psychology.
