Example text

As the research has attempted to understand the processes associated with resilience, one important finding suggests that rather than avoiding risks, resilient people take substantial risks to cope with stressors leading to what Cohler (1987) calls adaptation and competence. In a review of the factors associated with resilience to stressful life events throughout the life span, Tiet et al. (1998) found that: (a) higher IQ; (b) quality of parenting; (c) connection to other competent adults; (d) an internal locus of control; and (e) excellent social skills have been identified as protective factors that allow people to cope with stressful events.

1998) believe that the key reason resilient children cope well with adversity is that they: [T]end to live in higher-functioning families and receive more guidance and supervision by their parents and other adults in the family. Other adults in the family may complement the parents in providing guidance and support to the youth and in enhancing youth adjustment. Higher educational aspiration may also provide high-risk youth with a sense of direction and hope. (p. 1198) This leads one to believe that resilience doesn’t negate vulnerability to all outside stressors, but that it does provide primary coping mechanisms that permit high levels of functioning even in the midst of emotional side effects, including depression.
