Abstract:   (510 Views)
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health situation that can lead to unusual levels of hyperactivity and impulsive behaviors. ADHD children suffer from self-regulation problems that lead to inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity and inability in concentrate on tasks. The purpose of this research was to investigate the relationship between self-regulation and self-control in 13-17-year-old adolescents with ADHD. The method of the present research was descriptive-correlational type. The statistical population included all adolescents aged 13 to 17 years with ADHD who referred to counseling centers in Shiraz city, (Iran) in 2020 (N=273). The sample size was estimated to be 159 using Morgan's table and sample selected via accessible sampling. Data were collected using Bouffard self-regulation questionnaire and Tangney et al. Brief Self-Control Scale (2018). For data analysis, Pearson correlation and multiple regression were used. According to the results, the research model accounted for 33% of the variance in self-control. Also, the research results indicated that there is a positive and significant correlation between self-regulation and its components and self-control and its components. The findings suggest that teachers would use effective interventions to increase self-regulation and self-control in adolescents and reduce symptoms of hyperactivity and attention deficit in them.
