The purpose of this study was to investigate relationships between resilience with conflicts resolution in teachers. For this purpose, 297 teachers were selected by employing multistage cluster sampling.  They completed conflicts resolution (Weeks, 1994) and resilience (Connor & Davidson, 2003) scales in turn. Results revealed that there is a significant relationship between resilience, and theirs components with conflicts resolution. The analysis of regression showed that resilience positively and significantly can predict teacher's conflicts resolution (P< .001, R2= 0.43). The findings indicated that resilience and its component had important role in prediction of teacher's conflicts resolution.
