We will explore the major themes, dimensions, and conceptualizations of resiliency from communal and psycho-social perspectives. We will discuss how to mobilize resiliency within the framework of time-limited soul care and how to capitalize on the dynamic interaction among traditions, norms, values, and heritages, to further the healthy coping skills and thriving abilities. We will argue that resiliency, is not only an intrapsychic potential or individualistic strategy, but also a group resource and a collective faculty, richly stored in the community.
