This study examined the effects of a personality-development program on ego-resilience and maladaptive behavior of school age children. Method: This study used a non-equivalent control group pre-post design. The data was collected from Apr. 2007 to Nov. 2007. The subjects consisted of 33 children. The experimental group (n=17) participated in a self-development program that consisted of 8 sessions during an 8 week period, each session lasted for 45 minutes. To examine the effects of the self-development program an ego-resilience scale and behavior problem scale (BPPS)of K-YSR were measured before and after the program. Result: The results of analyses indicated that the score of ego-resilience increased but not significantly in the experimental group. There was significant change in anxiety/depression, social problems, and aggressive behavior of BPS of K-YSR after the intervention. Conclusion: This study showed that the 'Personality-Development Program' was effective on maladaptive behavior. Therefore, it is advisable to use it in a community-based child center for maladaptive behavior in vulnerable children.
