Even though the concept of resiliency is a popular one among researchers, clinicians, and laypersons, it remains a fairly ill-defined term. Traditionally, it has been associated with the study of children or adolescents who have managed to succeed in life despite having to face serious life challenges. This article argues that the concept of resiliency, consistent with many of the goals of the positive psychology movement, should be broadened so that it is applicable to all individuals who have shown strength after facing adversity. Several theoretical and practical issues for both researchers and clinicians are considered throughout the article.
