Resilience is another new area of research; however, its influence reaches numerous disciplines. Resilience research began in the 1980s, across several different fields, including nursing (Eicher et al., 2014) Unlike CF, which focuses on the healthcare professional side of a nurse-patient relationship, resilience is applied personally. Within the scope of nursing research, this means that resilience’s effect on both nurse and patient is important. At the broadest level, resilience is overcoming adverse situations, which would be beneficial for both nurses and patients. There is much debate amongst researchers as to what resilience is. In the beginning, it was studied as a trait (Masten, 1994). However, it has more recently ascribed to be a …show more content…
Earvolino-Ramirez wrote a concept analysis on resilience, paying particular attention to empirical evidence of resilience. Hart, Brannan, and Chesnay wrote an integrative review on resilience and the necessity of it in the nursing field. Eicher et al. did a study on the importance of resilience and effect on positive cancer patient outcomes. We will use, again, use the same three factors to assess the information provided by these articles: the definition of resilience, evolution over time, and its significance. This assessment will be done on these articles to provide a cohesive summary on the understanding of resilience as it applies to nursing …show more content…
This might be due to previous studies suggesting in order to combat CF, we need to increase CS, not attempt to decrease CF levels (Hegney et al., 2013). Taking into account Polk’s conclusion that resilience is a process, meaning it can be learned, resilience could also be described as the process to learn compassion satisfaction.
As seen in both literature reviews, non-resilient and CF sufferers both exhibit psychological emptiness. Although Hart, Brannan, and Chesnay felt like emotional detachment built resilience, this referred to “detachment [allowing] nurses to perform painful, uncomfortable patient procedures that were necessary in patients’ recovery process”. This process deflects the effects of STS, but does not equate to CF, where emotional detachment prevents nurses from performing their
Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from a traumatic experience. Eric Greiten writes,“To move through pain to wisdom, through fear to courage. Through suffering to strength requires resilience” (Eric Greiten 8). Whether the way a person express resilience is positive or negative, resilience acknowledges a person’s ability and pace to overcome the troublesome occurrences in life. In the book Unbroken, written by Laura Hillenbrand, the character Louis Zamperini deals with resilience by showing courage, and forgiveness.

What does resilience really mean to you? The literal definition to resilience is the ability to cope with problems and setbacks. In the story Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, she shows us all different kind of ways that the characters in her story used the skills that Kendra Cherry was talking about, to help them out of every situation. In this story it shows how certain situations affect people in different ways and how each person goes through seven skills. The characteristic that Louie undergoes is the skill of Strong Problem-Solving.
Throughout the memoir, The Glass Castle, Jeannette Walls recalls her family’s past and the struggle they went through. She inadvertently teaches the audience her meaning of resilience. But how is resilience defined? In short, resilience is the ability of a person to appreciate what life hands them instead of sulking upon it. A quote by Elizabeth Edwards supports this definition and ties in with Jeannette Walls’ personal experiences.
Hardy, Concato & Gill (2004) stated that resilient people are those who display “the capacity to remain well, recover, or even thrive in face of adversity”. Masten (2001) as mentioned that they are the ordinary person dealing with the challenges and tragedies of everyday real life. For instance, the response of many Americans to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and individuals’ efforts to rebuild their lives shows their resiliency. Being resilient does not mean that a person does not have or had experience difficulty or distress; the emotional pain and sadness are common but the path to resilience is likely to involve considerable emotional distress. Resilience is not a trait which people either has or do not have whereas it involves
In my view resilience can sometime be brought on by an emotional event and helps you with self-confidence. Additionally, I feel that resilience means that one can expect things that can happen in a process and can adjust accordingly to the situation at hand. My example of resilience was demonstrated in this TED talk video “My Escape from North Korea” by Hyeonseo Lee, she discusses her life in North Korea and how everything was transparent to her in North Korea as she was growing up until the age of seven. In response to Larry’s claim that” forgiveness is not for the other person,” he presents a poorly inconsistent argument, on several questionable norms, which his evidence is based solely on his life situations.
Resilience is the ability to overcome adversity, fear, and show strength. Many people run away from fear, it is the one thing many hope they never have to encounter. Fear makes people buckle and waver not wanting to fight against it. It is those who are truly resilient like Jason Zimmerman and Frederick Douglass, who faced more fear than anyone could imagine, but still fought through that fear because they are the true definition of resilience. Jason Zimmerman, who was first a cancer patient at the age of six months had so much fear to overcome.
Resilience is known as bouncing back from the adversities and bringing in strength to cope to difficulties. Adversities happen at personal, community and organisational level. Resilience allows the person to come out of the adversity, rather than staying with it and to move forward further. This is a way of maintaining positive mental health and maintaining one’s own well being in the midst of adverse conditions. It enables a person to maintain positive health in the midst of challenges (Mowbray, 2011).
Furthermore, these contextual patterns are underpinned by belief system, ideology and language ( Bronfenbrenner , Blum ). Hence the resilience paradigm focuses on strength based intervention and takes one away from deficit oriented practice. Building on my professional practice , incorporating the HEADSS assessment form facilitated the process of determining the risk and protective factors of my clients. As mentioned in my previous post I did not take any formal assessments during my counselling sessions in the past.
Resilience is the ability to bounce back from adversity or hardship, Debra Oswald was able to express this through the lives of fictitious characters based on real Australian People. She uses themes concerning people marginalised in society, the struggle to achieve one’s dream and the past affect the present, by using these ideas with the diverse cast of characters as well as the range of literary and dramatic techniques, Oswald was able to show how people face adversity and how important it is to have resilience through the engagement of the characters and there development throughout the play. Gary is an average Australian working class man who has been marginalised in society, he lives near the poverty line and struggles everyday to control
However, resilience may also be described as the innate human quality that has not necessarily developed only after big disasters but processed through positive adaptation. A person can be resilient if he/she experience positive life events such as a job promotion, wedding, birth of a new child or having a new pet. These incidents would require the person to perform new roles and responsibilities and he/she can develop resilience to these changes overtime. This is resilience acquired through positive adaption (Fletcher & Sarkar,
According to Masten (2001) “resiliency refers to a class of phenomena characterized by good outcomes in spite of serious threats to adaptation or development” (p. 228). Garmezy (1991) considers the intelligence level of an individual and ability to possess the mind power to tackle an adverse situation as one pleases as the core characteristics of a resilient individual. Garmezy (1991) resiliency framework allows student affairs professionals is to examine the strengths of disadvantaged students who are faced with various life stressors, but
Introduction This essay will look into how the concepts of resilience and the four trajectories proposed by Bonanno can be applied in the case studies. The target population of the case studies is people with medical conditions, namely, spinal cord injury, SARS and breast cancer. Furthermore, this essay will focus on the similarities of how people behave when facing a stressful situation. [[[[[Different percentages of trajectories, the possible predictors and the reason of the differences in the percentages of different trajectories]]]]]] Stressors and effects The first study is about people suffering from spinal cord injuries.
