Anu Dandona


Emotional competence is the ability to recognize our emotions and appropriately respond to the experience or situations. When we are emotionally competent, we have the ability to act in every situation or circumstances with calm inner clarity and have expertise in regaining that calm clarity. The present study was undertaken to evaluate and compare the emotional competence of residential and non-residential school adolescents. Total sample comprised of 200 school students, 100 adolescents studying in residential school and 100 adolescents studying in non-residential school were included in the sample. Further, sample was bifurcated according to gender of adolescents (50 girls and 50 boys). Emotional Competence Scale (Sharma and Bharadwaj, 1996) was used for collection of data. The obtained data were analyzed using Mean, S.D, ‘t’test and ANOVA statistical techniques. The results revealed significant differences in emotional competence of adolescents residing in residential and non-residential schools. Non-residential school adolescents have higher emotional competence as compared to residential school adolescents. Girls of residential school possessed more adequate depth of feeling and ability to function with emotions than the boys of residential school.
