The Role of Resilience and Coping Styles in Subjective Well-Being among Chinese University Students
Chen, Chen
Asia-Pacific Education Researcher, v25 n3 p377-387 Jun 2016
This study examined the relationship among resilience, coping styles, and subjective well-being (SWB) among 239 Chinese university students, with a focus on the mediating role of coping styles in the relationship between resilience and SWB and the moderating function of resilience in the prediction of SWB from coping styles. Results of latent variable modeling showed that (a) resilience and coping styles significantly predicted SWB, (b) emotion-oriented coping style served as a significant mediator in the relationship between resilience and negative affect, and (c) resilience acted as a moderator in the relationship between task-oriented coping style and life satisfaction. Specifically, for students who showed lower levels of resilience, the adoption of task-oriented coping styles facilitated their life satisfaction. However, the higher levels of resilience seemed not to further the positive effect of the adoption of task-oriented coping styles on students' life satisfaction. Implications for university students' positive education are discussed.
