he Relative Contribution of Psychological Immunity in Predicting Hypochondria in People Recovering from (Covid-19) Pandemic and Non-Infected People in Riyadh

Auther : Ahmed Al-Ahmed Yahya khatatbeh

Objective: This study aimed to determine the levels of psychological immunity and hypochondria, and to detect the predictive ability of the psychological immunity in relation to hypochondria in people recovering from their coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, and in uninfected people in Riyadh. The study sample consisted of (n = 145) respondents, whose ages ranged from 19 to 45 years, and they were divided into two groups: The "recovering" infected group (n = 67) and the non-infected group (n = 78). All respondents completed their responses to the psychological immunity scale prepared by Al-Maliki (2019) and the Illusion Delusion Scale prepared by Hinz et al (2003). Results: The results of the study showed that the level of psychological immunity was high among the "recovering" patients, while it was average among the non-infected people. The mean of hypochondria for the "recovered" group was low, while it was high for the "uninfected" group. Statistically significant differences were found in the level of psychological immunity based on gender variable in favor of females, while the differences were in favor of males in hypochondria. In addition, differences were found in psychological immunity, and hypochondria based on age variable for those aged (36-45) years. The regression analysis showed that the fifth sub-dimension of the psychological immunity dimensions (i.e., resilience and mental hardiness) was the strongest factor that predicted hypochondria, followed by self-control and stability, and finally by challenge and perseverance.
Keywords: Psychological Immunity, Hypochondria, recovered from COVID-19, Non- Infected.
