We explored the roles of psychological resilience and self-efficacy as mediators in the relationship between mindfulness and aggressive behavior. A sample of 720 Chinese undergraduates completed the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire, the Chinese version of the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale, the General Self-Efficacy Scale, and the Chinese version of the Buss and Perry Aggression Questionnaire. Results showed that psychological resilience played a mediating role between mindfulness and aggressive behavior, as did self-efficacy, and psychological resilience and self-efficacy played a chain mediating role between mindfulness and aggressive behavior. Thus, mindfulness can not only directly affect individuals’ aggressive behavior but can also indirectly affect their aggressive behavior through psychological resilience and self-efficacy. Our research results provide theoretical guidance for the practical management and control of aggressive behavior of college students.
