In recent years researchers, educationists and policy makers have been directly concerned with wellbeing particularly of youth which has been viewed as happiness, satisfaction, enjoyment, contentment and fulfilment of these hedonic and eudemonic factors. Focusing on wellbeing and building resiliency is important in establishing a holistic approach to health. Studies have shown that self-regulation also has a significant role in health as well as in success. Viewing the relevance of self-regulation and resilience in maintaining and enhancing psychological wellbeing present study was designed to see the gender difference in self-regulation, resilience and psychological wellbeing and to see the possible association of wellbeing with the three variables among school adolescents. Two major hypotheses were formulated for the study. There would be gender difference on self-regulation, resilience and psychological wellbeing. Psychological wellbeing would be related to the self-regulation and resilience of adolescents. The study was conducted on 120 IX and X class students of schools located in Delhi. Three different tools were administered on the participants for the measurement of self-regulation Moilanen(2007) adolescents self-regulatory inventory, for the measurement of resilience Conner and Davidson (2003) resilience scale while for the wellbeing WHO (2015) wellbeing index was used. Obtained data were analysed gender wise separately for each of the three variables. Results showed that females were high on all the three variables but the differences were too small to be statistically significant. However, self-regulation and resilience were found strongly related to the wellbeing scores of both the gender.
