Positivity among Adolescents in Goa: An Intervention Based Study

Fr. Ramiro Jesus Do Carmo Luis [2] | Dr. Shanmukh V. Kamble [2]

Abstract: In the age when humanity reports negative experiences, educational practices can rescue the demeaned world. Education is a process of inculcating the fundamental qualities of the mind, fostering and refining them, and thereby creating individuals, capable and willing to play a part in the betterment of self and of society. The present study assessed the effects of an intervention programme on the virtue of positivity. A sample of 40 adolescents (20 males- 20 females) were studied using a personal data sheet, Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (Watson, Clark & Tellegen, 1988) scale, and a self directed learning workbook to promote positivity by Caroline Lavelock and Everett Worthington. A pre-test and post test administration was used. A t-test analysis indicated very highly significant differences in the sample group with regards to positivity-trait measures and positivity state measures indicating the positive influences of the intervention module.
