The most pertinent question that arises in the present scenario is whether our teacher’s trainees are indeed well equipped to handle the pressures and challenges of their venerable profession. Psychological resilience can be viewed as the phenomenon of recovery from a prolonged or severe adversity, or from an immediate danger or stress; people who experience acute trauma, for example, may show extreme anxiety, sleep problems, and intrusive thoughts. This realm of research paper shows that self-esteem and sex are the correlates of
psychological resilience. Self-esteem is a concept that a person has regarding his own self which consists of any evaluation that he makes of himself or whatever feelings he has about himself. Chaudhri [3] found positive change of attitude towards female education and co-education and female employment was reflected in her study. There is general agreement that there is a close relationship between self-esteem and academic achievement. It is found that there is positive correlation between Psychological Resilience and self esteem of teacher
trainees (maleandfemale). There is insignificant difference in the self-esteem of male and female teacher trainees on the basis of Psychological Resilience.
