Introduction: Psychological well-being, reflecting positive mood, vitality, and interest in milieu, is a part of quality of life psychology. Attachment styles could be theoretically linked to well-being through stress appraisal patterns that include emotion regulation and resilience. Researchers believe that attachment, resilience, and emotion regulation have generally been identified as important determinants of psychological health or specifically spoken, psychological well-being. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship of attachment styles, emotion regulation and resilience with well-being among students of medical sciences. Methods: In this descriptive correlation investigation, study population included 200 medical sciences students of Semnan University selected through convenience sampling. Data was collected using questionnaires of attachment styles, emotion regulation, resilience and wellbeing. Data was analyzed using Pearson correlation and regression. Results: A significant positive relationship was observed between secure attachment (0.42) and reappraisal (0.37) to psychological well-being (p<0.05). In addition, the relationship of suppression (r=-0.42, p<0.05), preoccupied attachment (r=-0.23, p<0/05), and fearful attachment (r=-0.17 p<0.01) with well-being is significant and negative. Moreover, the results of stepwise regression analysis showed that suppression first and then secure attachment, reappraisal, resilience and fearful attachment style respectively have a significant role in predicting psychological well-being and predictor variables explain totally (0.34) of variations in psychological well-being (p<0.0001). Conclusion: The results indicate that attachment styles, resilience, and emotion regulation are proper predictors for psychological well-being. Therefore, forming strong networks of social support and interpersonal communication through academic programs is highly recommended to enhance students’ psychological well-being and mental health.
