Abstract:

The main purpose of this research is to develop the “Psychological Resilience -Oriented Psycho-Education Program-PROPEP” and to examine the effect of this program on psychological resilience, emotional intelligence and social interest levels of a group of adults. With PROPEP, it is aimed to develop psychological resilience, emotional intelligence and social interest in a group of adults. The effectiveness of the program is based on an experimental model with three measurements (pretest-posttest-follow-up test) and three groups (experiment, placebo and control group), and a total of 45 male subjects (experimental group N = 15, control group N = 15 and placebo group N = 15). The experimental group received “Psychological Resilience -Oriented Psycho-Education Program-PROPEP)” lasting 15 hours-10 weeks (90 minutes per session), while the placebo group received a Social Cognitive Career Theory Based Group İntervention Program lasting 15 hours-10 weeks (90 minutes per session). The control group did not receive any treatment during the same period. Significance level was taken as .05 in all analyzes. In the analysis of the data, t-test in dependent relationships and two way Anova for repeated measures (3x3 Split-Plot) were used. The results showed that the mean scores of psychological resilience, emotional intelligence and social interest post-test scores of the participants in the experimental group were significantly higher than the pre-test scores. On the other hand, the mean scores of psychological resilience, emotional intelligence and social interest follow-up test were significantly higher in the experimental group than the pre-test scores. In addition, there was no difference between the post-test and follow-up test scores of psychological resilience, emotional intelligence and social interest in the experimental group. However, in the experimental group, psychological resilience, emotional intelligence and social interest posttest and follow-up tests were found to be different between the experimental, control and placebo groups. In this context, it has been observed that the Psychological Resilience Oriented Psycho-Education Program prepared within the scope of the research is an effective psychological resilience program in increasing the psychological resilience, emotional intelligence and social interest levels of adults. Based on these findings, suggestions were made for researchers and practitioners.
