Self-esteem, ego-control, and ego-resiliency are related to behavioural adaptation.
Ego-control is the threshold or operating characteristics of an individual with regard to the expression or containment (Block & Block, 1980) of their impulses, feelings, and desires.
Ego-resilience refers to dynamic capacity to modify his or her model level of ego-control.
Exposed to risk factors maltreated children are more likely than non-maltreated children to demonstrate disruptive-aggressive, withdraw, and internalized behaviour problems. Maltreated children showed lower ego-resilience and intelligence when experience some risk factors.
Ego-resiliency and positive self-esteem were predictors of competent adaptation in the maltreated children.
