BACKGROUND This study was conducted to experientially obtain insights that would allow us to connect psychological immunity and heartbreaks in modern adolescents. The findings from this study have helped throw light on the psychological immunity in modern adolescents and how it changes with no support or different support systems. Interviews were conducted among 12 individuals 6 of whom identify as males, and other females, all in the age margin of 10-19, the age identified by WHO as adolescence.
METHOD A semi-structured interview format was followed for all participants. The sampling pool consisted of adolescents aged from 10 to 19. A comprehensive study of all the data collected was done.
RESULTS The inferences suggest that psychological immunity in modern adolescents is not only subjective to their cases but also depends on how socially mature they were beyond their relationships.
CONCLUSIONS Introverts who already communicated less than normal were observed to be affected the most. A good part of dealing with psychological problems in adolescents was also observed to be manipulated by how their parents were involved. Although in the study there was no tool deployed to measure accurately the psychological immunity, the overall trend was similar and all sampling participants displayed an endeavour to get better, some early, some a while later.
