Some Aspects of Coping and Resilience

ABSTRACT

This paper presents an introduction to the two concepts of coping and resilience, with their varied dimension. In order to unravel the concepts, the paper begins with brief narratives that show how individuals, groups, communities and nations display both coping and resilience every day. The analysis, then shifts to the meaning of every-day stress and adversity that are inevitable parts of our daily jigsaw puzzle of life, defines the contexts of coping and resilience and brings in strengths perspective into resiliency and finally signals the efficacy of an inner strengths approach. Part of this was previously published in a book entitled ‘Perspectives on coping and resilience', published earlier by authorspress 2013.
