Naviya Antony K, A Shahin Sultana
The Psychological well- being and Life Skills of 219 young adults were examined. Ryff’s Scale of Psychological well-being and Life Skills assessment scale (Perkins and Mincemoyer, 2003) were used to collect the data from the participants. The number of male and female participants are 102 and 117 respectively. The relationship between the Dependent variable Psychological well- being (PWB), the total score of Independent variable Life Skills and the five domains of Life Skills were examined using Pearson’s correlation and Multiple regression analysis. The independent t-test has been used to examine the gender differences in the different domains of the study variables. The Environmental mastery (PWB), decision making and communication skills of Life Skills domains showed significant gender differences.
