Abstract

Introduction: Satisfaction with life plays a crucial role in students' academic and personal experience as it can influence their academic performance, emotional well-being, and adaptation to the higher education environment.
Objective: To determine whether resilience, perceived social support, and self-esteem predict satisfaction with life in Peruvian pre-service teacher education students.
Methods: A quantitative, observational, analytical, predictive, and cross-sectional study was conducted. The sample consisted of 215 students of both sexes who were administered the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale Short Form, the Social Support Perception Scale, the Rosenberg Self-esteem Scale, and the Satisfaction with Life Scale, instruments with adequate psychometric properties. Regarding statistical methods, Pearson correlation coefficient was used, followed by multiple linear regression analysis.
Results: Multiple regression analysis showed a good fit for the model (F=78.319; p<0.05), indicating that resilience (β=0.103; p<0.05), perceived social support (β=0.268; p<0.05), and self-esteem (β=0.274; p<0.05) explained 52% of the total variance of the satisfaction with life variable.
Conclusions: Resilience, perceived social support, and self-esteem predict satisfaction with life in Peruvian pre-service teacher education students. Therefore, it is recommended to foster an institutional culture that values and promotes students' emotional well-being, providing psychological and emotional support resources and services.
