Participants were 537 undergraduates who were taking online courses at Texas A &M University . Most participants were traditionally -aged and female . Quantitative self -report measures for each construct were administered online via SurveyMonkey . The small , positive relationship between life events and resilience approached , but did not reach , statistical significance , and hope but not mindfulness was found to moderate this relationship . Correlations were significant , positive , and linear between resilience and hope (r = .57 , p < .01 ) , resilience and mindfulness (r = .50 , p less than .01 ) , and hope and mindfulness (r = .44 , p less than .01 ) . Suggestions for clinical interventions aimed at increasing resilience by increasing hope and mindfulness are provided
