Resiliency is a component of Positive Psychology. It has been studied in many groups of people who have very stressful occupations as well as those who have experienced illness or trauma. People who cope well with stress, who rise to the challenges of life, who have resiliency, have specific characteristics. I call them “The 5 Cs.” How do these apply to you?
