SAN MARTIN, Juan Luis  and  BARRA, Enrique. Self Esteem, Social Support and Life Satisfaction in Adolescents. Ter Psicol [online]. 2013, vol.31, n.3, pp.287-291. ISSN 0718-4808.

This study examined the relationship between self-esteem, perceived social support and life satisfaction in a sample of 512 male and female adolescents from the city of Concepcion (Chile) between 15 and 19 years. Both self-esteem and social support had significant positive relationships with life satisfaction. Regression analysis showed that both factors predicted life satisfaction, with perceived social support having more influence on life satisfaction than self-esteem. Diverse explanatory factors for obtained results are proposed.

Keywords : life satisfaction; self esteem; social support; adolescents.
