In the past few decades, dozens of social science research has documented what contributes to a person's resilience. From my own research in this area, there is an amazing continuity across these studies as to the factors one can build in one's own life that builds resilience.

I have documented this information on my website, and in my recent book: "The Resiliency Workbook: Bounce Back Stronger, Smarter & With Real Self-Esteem."
