This research examines the inter-relationships among German adolescents' self-efficacy, perception of familial, school, social environment, mental health, and academic grades. The sample consists of 170 students attending ninth in two schools in Konstanz, Germany.
Results show that self-efficacy beliefs are positively correlated with socio-economic status, mother’s education, social support from parents, teachers, friends, life-satisfaction, and academic grades. Self-efficacy beliefs are negatively correlated with stress. In particular, the beliefs in the capability to deal successfully with interpersonal relationships and to meet others’ expectations are important predictors for life-satisfaction. Results show that high stress levels occur with a negative perception of German society, and low stress levels occur with a strong belief in the ability to be successful in social activities. High self-efficacy concerning self-regulated learning is important for academic success.
Family is an important factor for adolescents’ mental health and development of self-efficacy and there is a rather unexpected emphasis on harmonious relationships that benefit adolescents’ life-satisfaction. In light of these results it is suggested to further examine the topic of relational orientation in Germany.
