COVID-19 pandemic caused an unprecedented disruption in all walks of life at the global level. Psychological health and well-being of youth reportedly got impaired, too, especially among those who had preexisting psychological health issues, exposing individual susceptibilities, emotional vulnerabilities, and preexisting fragilities. However, could the human potential of resilience help in enhancement of positive outlook and boost psychological health and well-being during the crisis? Emphasizing on the younger population, the general aim of the 3rd Biennial International Psychology Conference is to explore the associations between human resilience and psychological well-being during the extraordinary conditions caused by COVID-19 Pandemic and subsequent prolonged lock downs. This conference will focus on various sub-topics encompassing the general theme of human resilience. The conference will provide an international platform to academics, researchers, mental health professionals, health specialists and students to share ideas, research outcomes and knowledge and information centering on the potential protective factor of resilience associated with the successful coping, and also deliberate on the existing and prospective psychoeducational and clinical interventions to boost the protecting factors of resilience, emotional intelligence, and other modifiable factors.
