This presentation will explore the major themes, dimensions, and conceptualizations of resiliency from communal, psychosocial, cultural, and spiritual perspectives. We will discuss how to mobilize resiliency within the framework of time-limited soul care and use the dynamic interaction among heritages, norms, traditions, and values, to further the coping, surviving, and thriving strategies. We will argue that resiliency, is not only a psycho-emotional and individualistic potential ability, but also a collective foundation, resource, and faculty stored in the community. Thus, resiliency is a clear function of culture, group identity, and generational wisdom.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Compare a few basic definitions with more complex definitions of resiliency.
  2. List several social foundations and cultural mediators of resiliency and discuss three major obstacles to the study of resilience.
  3. Identify four psychosocial integrators, list four types of cultural resiliencies, and repeat four therapeutic questions to enhance resiliency in clients.
