Resiliency is the attribute, the concept, the process that epitomizes and operationalizes the strengths perspective.  Resiliency combines the interaction of two conditions:









Predominance of protective factors enable sustained competent functioning even in the presence of major life stressors.  One’s level of resiliency varies over the lifetime; it is an attribute that varies based on combination of factors present at a point in time.  Adversity is additive over time and decreases likelihood of resiliency.
