Bahman Sharifi, Sadegh Kamkar


One of the important goals of the educational system in every society is to create a basis for the all-round development of the individual and to educate healthy, efficient and responsible people to play a role in individual and social life. Since students, as the basic pillar of the country's education system, have a special role and position in achieving the goals of the education system, attention to this segment of the society in terms of education, training and psychology, the fertility and prosperity of the education and training system and finally the society itself causes This research was also conducted in order to investigate the relationship between psychological toughness, primary maladaptive schemas and dimensions of social identity with the social development of secondary school students. The research indicators were collected through psychological toughness questionnaires, Young's primary maladaptive schemas questionnaire, social identity questionnaire and social growth questionnaire. In this research, it has been shown that incompatible schemas (except for self-sacrifice and stubborn standards) are not related to social growth. Also, social identity and mental toughness do not have a significant relationship with social growth. Inconsistent patterns of sacrifice and stubborn standards have a direct and meaningful relationship with social development.
