In the recent years, the area of positive psychology has been focusing upon constructs
such as forgiveness and subjective well-being, which has significance positive mental
as well as physical health. This study aims at exploring the relationship between
forgiveness and subjective well-being and the mediating role that social connectedness
plays in such a relationship. The participants of the study were 567 college students
(male=177; Mage=20.41, female=390; Mage= 20.22) from Kerala. The statistical
analysis used in the study were Pearson’s correlation coefficient and Process Model
by Hayes for Mediation Analysis. The results of the study suggested a positive and
significant correlation between forgiveness and subjective well-being (r=0.28, p<0.01)
and that this particular relationship is partially mediated by social connectedness. As
forgiveness aids in predicting subjective wellbeing and social connectedness mediates
the relationship, more focus should be given in promoting these variables in therapeutic
settings; as the ultimate result will be reflected in the general well-being of the clients.
