Federico Pulido Acosta, Francisco Herrera Clavero

Abstract


The main objective of this paper is to reflect the pre­dictors of Fear and Social Skills, and the influence over each other, of teenagers from 12 to 18 in the city of Ceuta. To make it possible we focused on 557 participants from 4 different high schools that clearly reflect the city's pluricultural features; 45.8 % of them are boys and 54.2 % are girls; 64.5 % are Mus­lims and 35.5 % are Christians. The techniques used in this survey are Fear Survey Schedule for Children (FSSC-II), adapted for its use in the Spanish language by Ascensio et al. (2012) as well as the EHS (Gis­mero, 2000). The results show medium-low levels on Fear and medium-high levels on Social Skills. The Social Skills only are influenced by the sociodemo­graphic factors of gender and custom/religion. The Fear is influenced only by gender and cus­toms/religion. We have also found a relationship between Fear and Social Skills
