ABSTRACT

The study was conducted to examine a potential link between Hope and Emotional creativity (EC). In this context, Positive affect (PA) was explored as a mediator in the relationship between aforementioned variables. A sample of 300 undergraduate students from different streams namely- Fine arts, Fashion & Jewellery designing, Advertising and Conventional courses (B.A, B.Sc., B.Com.) was selected for the purpose. The results revealed that there was a significant positive correlation between Hope and EC (r = 0.121, p< 0.05); Hope and PA (r = 0.446, p< 0.01) and PA and EC (r= 0.194, p< 0.01). Regression analyses and Sobel- z test were used to test the research hypotheses. Mediation analyses revealed that Positive affect fully mediated the pathway between Hope and Emotional creativity.
