“Resilience is the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress — such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems or workplace and financial stressors. It means “bouncing back” from difficult experiences…..Resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have. It involves behaviors, thoughts and actions that can be learned and developed in anyone.” (APA) http://www.apa.org/helpcenter/road-resilience.aspx
Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy can be used to build and strengthen resilience, and to bring hidden strengths into client awareness. When people are depressed or anxious they often lose sight of the strengths they have. Therapy can help the person focus on and nurture those positive qualities and strengths in order to overcome depression and anxiety.
