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. Thus, resiliency is a clear function of culture, shared identity, and generational wisdom.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Compare basic definitions with more complex definitions of resiliency.
  2. List several social foundations and cultural mediators of resiliency and discuss three major obstacles toward the study of resilience.
