ABSTRACT

Present research used concurrent triangulation mixed method to explore relationship between resilience and variety of emotional challenges among young adults. Quantitative data were collected from 102 young adults using resilience scale for adults (Friborg, 2005). Simultaneously qualitative data was collected using CBT based open ended questions enquiring about emotional experiences and values of participants. Data was then categorized based on emotional challenges experienced by participants like Loneliness, self-doubt, numbness, being positive and control group. Quantitative data showed Intrapersonal resilience is significantly higher than Interpersonal resilience among participants. Stepwise regression showed that numbness and self-doubt predict 33 percent resilience levels while positive thinking only adds 6 percent into it. There was no significant difference on resilience among various emotional challenges, but there were prominent qualitative differences related to thoughts, feelings, physical symptoms and coping styles. Values did not play a significant role in research. Implications will help in counselling and development of resilience programs for young adults.
