Resilience in chronic illness
Resilience has been written about and valued since time immemorial. Its value is transmitted down generations through adages, mythology, anecdotes, and even children's books. In essence, resilience can be thought of as a process of successfully adapting to maintain or regain emotional well-being in the face of adversity. It does not mean that distress is not experienced; rather, it is a process through which an individual's thoughts and behaviors overcome distress and optimize positive outcomes. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
