Resilience and Dispositions for Deviant Behaviour among High School Students in Kisumu County

Abstract:

According to Morewood (2017), establishing a worldwide culture of resilience needs to be at the top of every school’s agenda as a means of addressing the alarming prevalence of mental health issues among young people. This study looked at the levels of resilience among adolescent students between the ages of 13-18 of forms one and two in Kisumu County, with a sample size of 414 students. This was a correlational research study that looked at the relationship between the different variables of resilience and deviant behaviour in Kisumu County. The study sought to find out the levels of resilience among students in the rural and urban schools of Kisumu County, and compared these findings to self-reported levels of suicide ideation and risk of violence. A questionnaire, which was an adaptation of the Child Youth Resilience Measure, was used to collect data on resilience, while separate questionnaires were developed for the suicide and violence data. The study revealed that adolescents in Kisumu County generally had acceptable levels of resilience. The male adolescents from rural areas showed levels of resilience that were lowest and there was a weak correlation between the resilience and deviant behaviours (suicide and violence) among the students.
