Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Resilience is a form of psychological elasticity and strength that allows one to recover quickly from difficulties.
Resilience is not rigidity or an incapacity to feel and think. It is an elastic and flexible capacity to 'roll with the punches' to adapt to circumstances creatively.
Rather, it is the ability to recover from setbacks and to overcome setbacks and disappointments.
Seme individuals have innate resilience, while more frequently resilience develops as the outcome of learning and awareness in therapy contexts.
Resilience enables us to get more pleasure to of the good times and the weather unpleasant times better.
