Abstract of the Article
The present research aimed to determine the differences in the psychological adjustment of adults who perceived their fathers as giving acceptance and rejection during their childhood. After a literature review, it was hypothesized that “Psychological maladjustment mean score would be more for adults who perceived their fathers as rejecting in childhood than those adults who perceived their father as accepting in childhood”.
To test this hypothesis the sample of 206 subjects (103 males and 103 females) was selected from different universities of Karachi, Pakistan. To measure the level of perceived father’s acceptance-rejection during childhood, Urdu version of Adult Parental Acceptance-Rejection Questionnaire/Control: Father-Short Form was administered while their psychological adjustment was measured through Urdu version of the Adult Personality Assessment Questionnaire.
For statistical analysis of collected data, a t-test was applied. Results point out that the hypothesis is statistically proved, indicating that for those adults who perceived their fathers as providing rejection in their childhood, their psychological adjustment was poorer than those who were given acceptance.
