Resilience

WHAT IS RESILIENCE?

Resilience is an individual's ability to successfully adapt to life's tasks in the face of social disadvantage or other highly adverse conditions or bounce back from a negative or possibly traumatic experience with ''competent functioning.'' The concept of resilience is not a trait but a process activated to manage life circumstances. Resiliency can be inherited, given or acquired through learning processes (Böhm, 2000, p. 168).
