Trasformazioni del concetto di resilienza e ricadute nella pratica

Translated title of the contribution: Modifications to the concept of resilience and practical consequences

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Resilience is a relatively new concept in mental health that represents an important area of study and research. It involves the capacity to deal with unfavourable situations and to benefit from them. The authors describe the evolution of the concept of resilience, initially involving the individual sphere and, more recently, evidence of a multidimensional and multidetermined resilience. Factors associated with resilience are then described, especially involving personal characteristics and family and environmental factors, including interactions between protective and risk factors and their influence on the psychopathological functioning of the subject. Lastly, the main processes that need to be implemented when working with children and adolescents at risk are described.
