Original research

The current study aimed at finding out the nature of the relationship between the psychological resilience and the coping with stress strategies among Palestinian University Students. It also aimed to identify the level of each variable and the demographic variables affecting them. The study adopted the descriptive correlational approach. The sample consisted of (200) individuals selected by the available method. The measures of psychological resilience (Jefferies, McGarrigle, & Ungar, 2019) and coping with stress strategies (Al-Hilali, 2009) were used. T tests, ANOVA and Pearson correlation coefficient were used to analyze the data and reach the results.

The most important results were the high psychological resilience, and the high use of positive strategies to cope with stress compared to the negative ones. The results had also revealed a significant positive correlation between psychological resilience and positive strategies to cope with stress, and a significant negative one with maladaptive coping strategies. As for the demographic variables, there were differences in the level of psychological resilience attributed to gender, in favor of females, while no other differences can be attributed to (generation, economic level, place of residence) in any of the two variables. The results were interpreted based on theoretical framework and community specificity. Practical applications and future research were discussed.
