Abstract

The present paper examines the relationship between adaptability and psychological wellbeing by focusing on the potential moderating role of social support. In total, 202 students aged 16-19 years from a sixth form setting in England, completed measures of their adaptability and social support, as well as their psychological wellbeing. Analyses revealed that adaptability was the strongest independent predictor of psychological wellbeing, although social support was also found to make a significant independent contribution. Further, and to address some mixed findings in the field, social support was found not to moderate the association between adaptability and psychological wellbeing. These findings have important implications for educators and researchers seeking to promote psychological wellbeing (via adaptability and social support) among sixth formers.
