Sehrish Fatima, Sumera Khan


The current study aimed at finding out the relationship between self-esteem and coping styles among divorced working people. The sample consisted of 120 divorced working people, which was further divided into (n=60) men and (n=60) women from different public and private sectors. Purposive sampling technique was used. The age range of the participants was taken from 30 to 45 years. The educational level was from middle to B.A. Self-esteem questionnaire by Rifai (1991) (Urdu version) and coping responses inventory (Urdu version) by Mehmood and Sheraz (2012) were used. The results of this study revealed significant negative correlation between low level of self-esteem and avoidance coping styles and significant positive correlation between high level of self-esteem and approach coping styles. Many divorced people were unaware of their problems because they did not realize the actual reason of their problem. This study will activate psychologists, counselors and NGO's to work positively for divorced people. It will motivate to develop special skill and coping skills for divorced people. This research will develop awareness to the society, government and private agencies that will work effectively for the counseling, therapy or rehabilitation of the divorced people.
