≪Organizer Abstract≫
From a positive psychology perspective, how we successfully manage and address everyday challenges and even turn them to our advantage requires the development of protective factors in our everyday personal and professional lives. In this context resiliency is a fundamental human resource, allowing individuals to 'bounce back in the face of adversity' and even to thrive and flourish. For this reason, building strength and recognizing the value of resilience as a pillar of psychology underscores its significance in living our lives in harmony.
In this symposium, we will describe the new Resiliency Scale for Young Adults, examine the relationship of resilience and career outcomes, focus on the importance of adaptation in avoiding nagative emotions and stress, and explore the relationship between stressor and stress responses and the perceived well being.
This preventive and positive psychology perspective argues that resilience is a strength needed to attain well-being in the 21st century.
