Zhongjiao Wang


Psychological flexibility is a complex dynamic psychological structure, and refers to the dynamic adaptation process which appears repeatedly and matches the situation in the process of interaction between individuals and environment. In the course of their own growth and development, the positive thinking quality of college students means that college students interact with the acquired education environment to form active, positive and upward attitudes, have correct self-cognition ability, can bravely and strongly face setbacks, and have strong sense of identity with the society. It can enable college students to obtain a strong sense of self-efficacy and subjective well-being. Through the positive thinking intervention contrast, this study compares differences in psychological flexibility between the intervention group and the non-intervention group, and obtains the positive effect of the positive thinking intervention on the psychological flexibility of college students.
