Emotional pressure is one of the emerging issues in a country like India. It increases daily at the adolescent stage and is affected by various factors. Emotions, by nature, enable the organism to cope with circumstances that demand strong efforts for survival. Social adjustment measures the factors related to social relationships, social status, leadership qualities, and so on. The adolescent's self-concept is related to their mental health, interpersonal competence in social relationships, and progress in academics and co-curricular activities. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the causal relationships among these variables (self-image, social adjustment, and emotional maturity) with path analysis. Path analysis was used to examine the relationships among variables. The tool was prepared after analyzing the various aspects of self-image, social adjustment, and emotional maturity. The data were collected from 870 undergraduate students in south Chennai, and stratified sampling was adopted for the study. Data analysis was done using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM). The results showed that Social Adjustment had a positive effect on Emotional Maturity.
