EXAMINATION OF THE LEVEL OF PSYCHOLOGICAL RESILIENCE BY GENDER IN ADOLESCENTS

The aim of this study is to examine the findings related to gender with the method of the meta-analysis by examining the theses on psychological resilience in adolescents. In this context, 18 studies were added to the analysis. The sample of the study consisted of a total of 9878 adolescents, 5259 of which were girls and 4619 of which were boys. Egger test and Funnel plot methods were used for publication bias. No publication bias was detected as a result of the study. According to the random-effects model result, the overall effect size was d=-0.022 (no effect) lower limit -0.040 upper limit 0.040, 5259 girls and 4619 boys, this result is not statistically significant p=0.722. However, among the studies, Tuğral (2020), Bulut (2016), and Kılıç (2019) found results in favor of boys, while Gürkan (2018) and Turgut (2015) found results in favor of girls. In addition, the results of the remaining 13 studies, except for 5 of 18 studies, were not statistically significant. The heterogeneity test of the studies in the meta-analysis was found to be Q=144,680. In addition, p=0.000 (p<.05) was found to have a heterogeneous structure. For gender, the mean effect size value according to SEM, ??2=88,250, indicates a high level of heterogeneity. According to the results obtained in both REM and FEM, it is interpreted that there is no difference between the genders. It can be interpreted that gender may not be considered as a variable in studies to be conducted with adolescents on psychological resilience
