Abstract: 

Life doesn’t always go the way we wish or expect. Problems arise in the family, the workplace, and the neighborhood. Relationships end, children leave home, we lose our job, we get sick, or a loved one dies. But most of us successfully adjust to changes in our lives. It seems that this adjustment is a sign of resilience in us. Developmental psychologists have long been interested in the construct of resilience, which has been broadly defined as ‘‘a dynamic process wherein individuals display positive adaptation despite experiences of significant adversity or trauma’’. The resilience is Multidimensional Construct which genetic (e.g. intelligence) and environmental factors (e.g. family socioeconomic status) play a major role in shaping it development. Indeed, resilient individuals who possess Personal (e.g. self-efficacy and happiness) and social traits (e.g. warmth parents and adults outside the family who take an interest in promoting the child’s welfare) not only have good interpersonal skills but also have sense of greater control over their lives and they actively plan how to cope with events.
