Abstract:   (119 Views)

Background and objective: Many deaf adolescents tend to show more aggression, due to their less social, and emotional skills. This also affects their self-evaluation and self-esteem. Life skills are related to personal, intellectual, emotional, and physical development of an individual. The present study aims to examine the effectiveness of a life skills training program on improvement of the self-esteem and aggression control of deaf adolescents girls.
Methods and materials: This was a quasi-experimental study with pre-test, post-test and control group. The study sample included 34 deaf adolescents girls who were studying in first,second and third grade of high school in Nezam Mafi High School, Tehran, Iran. Participants were selected using a purposive convenience sampling method, and were randomly divided into two groups (experimental and control groups). The Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory (SEI) and the Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire (AQ) were used to collect data. The life skills training program was delivered to the experimental group in 8, 60-minutes sessions.
Findings: The study results showed that the eight session life skills training program significantly increased self-esteem  (p<.001) and decreased aggression of the intervention group of deaf adolescents girls (p<.001) while there was no change in control group.
Conclusion: According to the results, it can be concluded that it is a social necessity to consider life skills training as a way of improving the mental status of deaf adolescents girls.Since there may be less social experiences in deaf adolescents,a trining program may help them to achieve more self esteem skills and be more successful in social communications.
