Background & Aim: Self-efficacy and despair are factors that can directly affect the quality of life of individuals. This study aimed to determine the relationship between self-efficacy and despair in young individuals and was carried out on elementary students.
Methods: This research is a descriptive and correlational study. The study sample consisted of both girl and boy students of Mohtashami Elementary School in the city of Torbat Heydariyeh. From the population, a total of 89 girls and boys were selected using the stratified random sampling method. In this study, the measuring tools were Scherer's self-efficacy questionnaire, the scale of despair of Kazdyn and demographic information. The accumulated data was processed using spss software, version 20.
Results: The results showed there was no significant correlation between the efficacy and despair in boys (r=-0.13, sig=0.546). However, there was a significant inversed correlation between efficacy and despair in the girls; and the correlation coefficient (r=-0.48) and a significant amount (sig=0.006) was obtained.
Conclusions: It can be concluded that an increase in self-efficacy of students could reduce despair. Suitable self-efficacy methods should be introduced and strengthened in classroom environments. More research needs to be done on this subject in the future.
