Resiliency is defined as the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress—such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems, or workplace and financial stressors. As much as resiliency involves “bouncing back” from these difficult experiences, it can also involve profound personal growth.
