Resilience of Russian adolescents from single-parent families
Presenter: Konstantin Zuev (Institute of Psychology of Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia)
Co-Author: Irina Zueva  
Introduction: Divorce is a strong psychological trauma that affects the development of children. In Russia, about every third marriage ends in divorce. Our hypothesis is that the resilience of adolescents depends on the type of family (single or two-parent) and parenting styles at the same time.
Methods: A sample 356 adolescents was used from Moscow consisting of 66 boys and 78 girls from single-parent families. The adolescents completed the questionnaires: ADOR (parenting styles), and the locus of control questionnaire, Personal Sovereignty Questionnaire (PSQ-2010) Statistical treatment. A two-way ANOVA was conducted with the following independent variables: Type of family (single or two-parent) and parental styles, and the following dependent variable: Adolescents resilience (the locus of control Personal Sovereignty) 
Findings: The high level of directivity, hostility and inconsistency of mothers repressed sovereignty. The high level of positive interest in the mothers increased the level of sovereignty. The difference between adolescents from single-parent and two-parent families was revealed only when mothers showed high-level of directivity or low level of positive interest.
