Abstract:   (1521 Views)
This study examines the effectiveness of group hope training based on Snyder’s theory on academic engagement and social adjustment in female high school students. The study method was a quasi-experimental pretest-posttest with a control group. The statistical population of the present study included all female high school students in Bushehr (Iran) in 2021. The research sample included 30 students selected by the accessible sampling method and randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The Social Adjustment Scale by Kim (1999) and School Engagement Scale by Wang et al. (2011) were used to collect data. Group hope training based on Snyder’s theory was performed in 9 sessions in the experimental group. The control group did not receive any intervention during this period. The results exhibited that group hope training based on Snyder’s theory significantly increased the components of academic engagement (i.e., behavioral, emotional, and cognitive) and social adjustment in the experimental group. Overall, the research findings support the effectiveness of educational programs based on positive psychology on learners’ motivational and emotional outputs.
