Abstract

The primary objectives of this research synthesis were to examine the characteristics of published research studies conducted in Thailand related to positive psychological capital, self-management and family coping and to consider how positive psychological capital is related to self-management. The review consisted of 128 research studies that were accessed using online databases and were available to be downloaded in fulltext versions. The information within each study was analyzed and synthesized using content analysis. Research synthesis results showed that positive psychological capital, selfmanagement and family coping were included in dissertations for master’s degrees, that the majority of research objectives were descriptive, the data was collected by questionnaire, the reliability of instruments was Cronbach’s alpha coefficient and the validity of instruments was content validity. Findings from the reviewed studies supported a positive correlation between positive psychological capital and self-management.
