There is a move away from defining resilience solely in terms of an
internal quality or an outcome. Currently, resilience is being
conceptualised as an ongoing interactive process that enables a
person to make use of internal (personal attributes, such as coping
skills) and external (such as family support) resources during times of
adversity to function positively. The concept of bouncing back is inextricably linked to resilience. In
essence, resilience is a personal journey towards coping and
functioning positively in the face of life’s challenges.
