The Present research investigated the relationship between emotional
maturity and reaction to frustration among adolescents living in
orphanages. It was hypothesized that there would be a positive relationship
between emotional maturity and reaction to frustration of adolescents
living in orphanages. It was also hypothesized that there would be a
significant difference on emotional unstability and aggressive reaction to
frustration in males and females. Cross-sectional design was performed.
Sample of (N = 80) orphans (n = 40) males and (n = 40) females was
recruited from both the branches of Dar ul Shafqat. Emotional Maturity
Scale (Singh Barghava, 1971) and Reaction to Frustration Scale (Dixit &
Sarisvastava, 1997) were used to assess the study variables. Pearson
product movement correlation and independent sample t-test were used to
generate results that indicated that there was no relationship between
emotional maturity and reaction to frustration. It was also assessed that
females were more emotionally unstable as compared to males and males
use more aggressive reaction to frustration. The findings of the research
are helpful for the betterment of emotional
maturity of the orphans to make changes to the environment to reduce the
frustration and aggression of the adolescents living there.
