The purpose of this study is to investigate the level of learned resourcefulness in institutionalized and non-institutionalized adolescents who are 16-20 years old. The sample of this study consisted of 208 institutionalized and non-institutionalized (105 non-institutionalized, 103 institutionalized) adolescents from a public school, and four institutions in Ankara. Rosenbaum's Self Control Schedule (SCS) was used to collect data. A two-way analysis of variance was applied to analyze data. The results revealed a significant difference between institutionalized and non- institutionalized adolescents in terms of their SCS scores. Adolescents who live with ıutheir parents scored significantly higher on SCS than did institutionalized adolescents. On the other hand, results indicated no significant differences in terms of gender. However, results also indicated that there was a significant gender difference between these groups as a function of being institutionalized. Non-institutionalized male adolescents scored higher on SCS than institutionalized male adolescents.
