Resilience in the face of adversity has been studied extensively by psychologists for the past fifty years. This body of work has defined the common theme of resilience as the ability to weather adversity or to bounce back from a negative experience. Research on resilience suggests that psychological symptoms and disorders may be based in part on lower personal resiliency or greater vulnerability to situations and events that the person has experienced (Garmezy, 1971, 1985, 1991; Garmezy, Masten, & Tellegen, 1984; Luthar, 1991; Luthar, Cicchetti, & Becker, 2000; Luthar & Zigler, 1991, 1992; Masten, 2001; Masten & Coatsworth, 1998; Masten & Curtis, 2000; Masten & Powell, 2003; Masten et al., 2005; Prince-Embury, 2007, 2008, 2013a; Prince-Embury & Saklofske, 2013, 2014; Rutter, 1987, 1993).
