Resiliency
english

A universal and innate human capacity, which can empower a child, adult, family, group, community, or business organization to prevent, minimize or overcome the damaging effects of adversity. Masten and Coatsworth (1998) define resilience as “manifested competency in the context of significant challenges to adaptation or development.”
