The Role of Psychological Resilience in Predicting Psychological Distress among Kuwaiti Adults during Corona Pandemic ( English Research )

Auther : Shahah Al-Tammar

Background and Objective: A novel pneumonia caused by coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which has spread domestically and internationally, has been identified in the Chinese city of Wuhan since the end of December 2019. While symptoms such as depression, anxiety, and stress have become common among people during the Corona pandemic, only a limited number of studies have examined the psychological experience during Corona pandemic. Moreover, to the best of our knowledge, no study to date has examined psychological resilience and mental health during the Corona pandemic in Kuwait. Therefore, the present research investigates the role of psychological resilience in predicting psychological distress among Kuwaiti adults during the Corona pandemic. Method: the study sample comprised seven hundred and thirty five Kuwaiti citizens, of those who completed online surveys, including four scales: the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC-25), and the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS). A cross-sectional correlational design was used. Results: There were statistically significant differences in the stress variable between the groups of Kuwaiti adults who were diagnosed with COVID-19 and those who were not diagnosed. Psychological resilience was negatively correlated with anxiety, depression, and stress, which is consistent with previous studies. As expected, resilience was found to account for a significant portion of variance of anxiety, depression, and stress after controlling for demographic variables and Corona related variables. Conclusion: The findings suggest that with increased psychological resilience, distress can be reduced among Kuwaiti citizens during stressful life events.
