Abstract:   (1705 Views)
The purpose of this study investigated the role of resilience, emotional regulation and perceived stress among depressed students of the Payame Noor University of Tehran. The research design was descriptive and correlational. The study population consisted of all students of Payame Noor University of Tehran who were studied in the academic year of 2018-19. 150 students were selected by purposeful sampling method (61 males, 89 females), aged 19–34 years. The Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) and The Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (CERQ), and Perceived Stress Scale-10 (PSS-10) were administered in this study. Data were analyzed by  SPSS version 23 and were used for data analysis. Regression analysis revealed that emotion regulation had the most contribution in predicting perceived stress while, resiliency was the next contributing factor, respectively. These variables could predict 24 percent of perceived stress altogether. More research must be done to identify what affects stress levels during a college course, how resilience and emotion regulation may affect stress levels in college or the general population, and if stress prevention efforts are possible for new college students.
