The present research was conducted to investigate relationship in mindfulness, emotion regulation and resilience among medical and para medical trainees. It was hypothesized that: there is likely to be a positive relationship in mindfulness, emotion regulation and resilience; there is likely to be difference in mindfulness, emotion regulation and resilience in men and women as well as medical and para medical trainees. Correlational research design was used. The sample comprised of 150 trainees (n = 75 medical, n = 75 para medical) from different hospitals in Lahore. Mindfulness Attention Awareness Scale (Rayan & Brown, 2003), Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (Gross & Johns, 2003) and Brief Resilience Scale (Smith, 2009) were used for assessment purposes. Pearson Product Moment Correlation, Hierarchical Regression and Independent Samples t-test were applied for analyses. Results of correlational analysis showed no significant relationship between mindfulness, emotion regulation and resilience. Results showed that mindfulness and emotion regulation are not significant predictors of resilience. Results have important implications for doctors and nurses for developing trait mindfulness and regulate their emotions in a proper way and develop trait resilience.
