Enhancing Resilience and Happiness among Mainland Students Studying in Hong Kong: An Explorative Study
DescriptionThis project seeks to examine how resilience and its protective factors are related to happiness for Mainland students studying in Hong Kong. It serves a dual-function in its research design: (1) to describe the essential characteristics of resilience for successful integration of Mainland students into Hong Kong society, and (2) to prescribe effective ways of enhancing resilience and happiness for Mainland students' academic and occupational successes in Hong Kong. As such, this study is expected to replicate itself later for other international student bodies (e.g., students from Australia, Europe, and North America) to meet the increasing demands of globalization in Hong Kong high education. Hopefully, the present study could establish a theoretical model for understanding and enhancing resilience and happiness for Mainland students studying in Hong Kong. It is worth mentioning that the present two investigators have had extensive experiences in studying resilience and other related factors in the past.
