Abstract

The present study aimed to find out the differences on Collective Self-esteem and Hopelessness among people with substance use and people with non-use. Moreover, the association between collective self-esteem and hopelessness among people with substance use was also explored. The sample consisted of sixty men (N=60) out of which thirty were people with substance use (n=30), and thirty were people with non-use (n=30). The Beck‟s Hopelessness Scale (Beck, Weissman, Lester, & Trexler, 1974) and Collective Self-esteem Scale (Luhtanen & Crocker, 1992) were used to collect data. Data was analyzed with the help of ttest and Pearson Product Moment Coefficient of Correlation. The results demonstrated higher level of hopelessness (t=10.770, p<.05) and lower level of collective self-esteem (t=29.00, p<.05) in people with substance use as compared to people with nonuse. Further, the results showed a negative correlation between collective self-esteem and hopelessness among people with substance use (r= -0.371, p<.05).
