ABSTRACT

The purpose of the present study is to examine relationships between ego strength, stress-coping, and positive mental health in adolescents using structural equation modeling. The present study suggested a proposed model in which stress-coping exerted a partial mediating effect on the relation between ego strength and positive mental health. Goodness of fit tests were used to compare the proposed model against competing models. The participants were 249 high school students (161 males, 88 females). They completed the Stress-Coping Style Scale, the Ego Strength Scale, and the Positive Mental Health Scale. The results showed that the proposed model had a better goodness of fit. Based on these findings, it is suggested that psychological interventions for positive mental health in adolescents should consider strategies to enhance their ego-strength.
