Abstract

Introduction: Resilience is one of the important issues in health psychology. Many studies have examined the factors related to it. The aim of this study was to predict the resilience of primiparous women by emotional intelligence, and positive and negative affect. Materials and Methods: This research is a descriptive cross�sectional study. The statistical populations consisted of all primiparous women in Ardabil in 2015. 122 women from birth control health centers were selected through available sampling method. Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC), Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue), and Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) were used for gathering the data. Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regressions were used for data analysis by SPSS version 20. Results:The results revealed that there are significant relationships between emotional intelligence, and positive and negative affect with resilience (P<0.05). Moreover, optimism (β=0.251, P<0.0001), self-awareness (β=0.486, P<0.0001), social skills (β=0.283, P<0.0001), positive affect (β=0.343, P<0.0001), and negative affect (β=0.410, P<0.0001) can predict resilience in primiparous women. Conclusion: According to the results of the present research, pregnant women who had more positive affect and emotional intelligence had more resilience.
