Research in the area of resilience by the American Psychological

Association, the Penn Resilience Program, and the Posttraumatic Growth

Research Group at the University of North Carolina, suggests a number

of traits that combine to help an individual exhibit growth and strength

following life changes, crises or traumatic events. There are a number

of characteristics that have been linked with being resilient. These

characteristics for building resilience can be divided into three major


1. Attitude:

Providing the outlook, focus, and psychological support that can

lead to personal growth.

2. Resilience Skill Development


Identify and practice various tools for problem solving – changing

perspective, empathic listening, and the ability to effectively

communicate with others.

Supporting the physical and emotional energy needed to recharge

We don’t have control over the bumps and turns that we

encounter along life’s journey. Building resilience can help us

navigate those bumps and turns so we keep moving forward.
