dc.description.abstractPsychological Capital (PsyCap) is a construct which comprises of four components - Optimism, Self-Efficacy, Hope and Resilience. The state-like property of PsyCap suggests that it can be developed through a short training intervention. The aim of this study is to investigate if a Psychological Capital Intervention can enhance PsyCap in a student population. Using a convenience sample, data was collected from 24 students in Dublin Business School. An experimental, mixed within participant and between group design was applied. Participants were randomly assigned to complete either a treatment or control intervention. Levels of PsyCap were assessed pre and post each intervention. Data was analysed using a two-way mixed ANOVA. Results showed a significant increase in PsyCap from Time 1 to Time 2 for both interventions. PsyCap Intervention participants had greater PsyCap at Time 2 than participants in the control group. The results demonstrate the potential for PsyCap development in student populations.
