What is Resilience

Resilience State

“Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress, such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems or workplace and financial stressors. 

It means ‘bouncing back’ from difficult experiences. Research has shown that resilience is ordinary, not extraordinary.  People commonly demonstrate resilience.”
