dc.description.abstractThis study examines the relationship between well-being, coping behaviours, and three personal values (gratitude, personal growth initiative, and meaning-in-life). 103 adults from a non-clinical population completed self-report questionnaires. Wellbeing was defined as high levels of satisfaction with life, subjective happiness and positive affect, and low levels of negative affect. A correlational design was employed. A significant positive correlation was found between well-being and both gratitude and personal growth initiative, suggesting that they are associated with levels of well-being. The findings in relation to meaning-in-life were inconclusive. Significant correlations were found between well-being and a number of coping behaviours. Methodological and theoretical issues are discussed, with suggestions for future research and practical applications.en
