Abstract

The health and social science have been characterized by a pathogenic paradigm, evidenced, for instance, by psychologists' proclivity for detecting deficits, in practice, this view fosters a disempowering image of people, inresearch it could result in information being ignored. A paradigm has beenemerging for at least half a century, with many attempts to discover "whatcan go right". Two basic assumptions are that stressors and adversity are an integral part of the human condition, and that there are sources of strength through which this condition can be endured, even transcended, thus producing a strengthening and toughening of the individual. Examples of thinking along these lines are presented. A description of resilience follows. AResilience Exercise is touched on, in which participants are requested to complete stories in response to sentences that introduce adverse situations. Scoring consists of descriptions of 11 scoring categories, each followed by diverse examples: it could also be used to assess resilience from personal documents, e.g. letters, diaries, biographies or speeches. Implications of resilience as a framework for therapy and counselling are touched on, and a training program is briefly described.
