Psychological Resilience is the capacity to withstand stress and catastrophe. Psychologists have long recognized the capabilities of humans to adapt and overcome risk and adversity. Individuals and communities are able to rebuild their lives even after devastating tragedies. Psychological Resilience develops as people grow up and gain better thinking and self-management skills and more knowledge. Psychological Resilience also comes from supportive relationships with parents, peers and others, as well as cultural beliefs and traditions that help people cope with the inevitable bumps in life. Psychological Resilience is found in a variety of behaviors, thoughts, and actions that can be learned and developed across the life span.
International Journal of Emergency Mental Health and Human Resilience is one of the digital and peer reviewed journals in Psychological Resilience. The journal follows a stringent peer-review process that aims to improve the overall quality of the published content and attracting more number of citations.
