This study examines the mediating role of psychological resilience in the relationship between psychological counselors’ use of coping humor and psychological well-being through structural equation modeling. Research participants comprise 228 psychological counselors between the ages of 23 and 52, among which 130 are female and 98 are male. A correlational research model is used in the research as one of the quantitative research methods. Data is collected through the scales of Coping Humor, Psychological Well-Being, and Psychological Resilience. Data is analyzed through t-test, Pearson product-moment correlation and structural equation modeling. Findings demonstrate that there is positively significant correlation between coping humor, psychological well-being, and psychological resilience. Moreover, coping humor significantly predicts psychological well-being positively whilst psychological resilience remains a partial mediating variable in this relationship. Findings show that the conceptual model developed for relationships between coping humor, psychological well-being, and psychological resilience is statistically supported.
