Abstract

In the current study, we investigated self-forgiveness, coping self-efficacy, mindfulness, and resilience as predictors of subjective well-being. The study group consisted of 1091 undergraduate students. A Personal Information Form, the Heartland Forgiveness Scale, the Mindful Attention Awareness Scale, the Coping Self-Efficacy Scale, the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale-Short Form, the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule, and the Satisfaction with Life Scale were used as data collection tools in the study. Pearson Correlation Analysis and Structural Equation Model analysis were performed in the study. According to the results of the structural equation model analysis, it was revealed that all the positive characteristics in the model contributed significantly to the subjective well-being of undergraduate students. In addition, apart from the path from mindfulness to resilience, other paths in the structural model were found to be statistically significant, as well.
