Abstract


This study was carried out to examine effects of Behavioural Modeling (BM) and Emotion Control (EC) therapies on achievement emotion among senior secondary students in Oyo State, Nigeria. The study adopted a pretest-posttest, control group quasi experimental design with a 3x2x3 factorial matrix. The population in this study comprised of senior secondary school students one (SS1) of Oyo State, Nigeria. Multistage random sampling technique was used to select a sample size of 120 participants. The instrument used to collect data is a structured questionnaire called Achievement Emotions Questionnaire (AEQ). This instrument was adapted and used to collect data among the participants and the reliability coefficient of adapted instrument r = 0.83. Data collected were analysed using Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) at α = 0.05level of significance and Duncan Post-hoc analysis was used to determine the directions of the difference among the groups. The findings of the study showed that behavioural modeling and emotion control therapies were effective in enhancing achievement emotion of senior secondary I (SS I) students. However, Behavioural Modelling Therapy (BMT) was more effective in enhancing achievement emotion than Emotion Control Therapy (ECT) (BMT = 104.93 and ECT = 94.35). Gender and academic self-efficacy were significantly moderate the achievement emotion significantly. The researchers recommended that Counselling psychologists should adopt the two interventions when handling issues related to achievement emotion.
