Introduction: Psychological and behavioral domains involve important issues in coping with diabetes. Therefore, this study was conducted in order to investigate the relationship between resilience and hardiness in patients with diabetes 2 in Yazd. Methods: This study is a descriptive-correlation study which the sample consisted of 310 diabetic patients (160 women and 150 men). In order to glean the study data, Caner and Diveson psychological resilience and Ahvaz psychological hardiness questionnaires were applied. Data analysis was performed via SPSS18 software utilizing Pearson correlation and independent T-test. Results: The study results indicated that a significant correlation was observed between resilience and hardiness in each group as well as within all patients with diabetes. Comparing the means of the two groups in regard with resilience and hardiness, it was demonstrated that the differences between men and women with respect to hardiness was significant (t=3/19, p=0/04), though the means of the two groups for resilience was not significant. Conclusions: Regarding the positive relationship between hardiness and resilience, it could be expected that employing proper treatment in order to increase resilience and hardiness in diabetes, will lead to a decrease in perception of psychological problems, as well as an increase in quality of life.
