The present study was performed to investigate the relationship between resilience and positive thinking of male and female teachers in Jahrom
city. The statistical population included 150 teachers (94 females and 56 males) in Jahrom in 2019. Among them, 108 teachers were selected by
cluster sampling. Data was collected through Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (Connor and Davidson, 2003) and Automatic Thoughts
Questionnaire-Positive (Ingram and Wisnicki, 1989). The validity and reliability of these questionnaires were confirmed via content validity and
Cronbach's alpha, respectively. Descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation, and multivariate regression were simultaneously performed to analyze
the data. It was manifested that two components of resilience including trust in individual instincts and spiritual influences could directly predict
changes in positive thinking.
