From GFSC, as an entity that seeks to contribute to the increase of resilience and autonomy of 
communities in times of crisis, we want to invite our friends  to remember some basic concepts about 
Resilience, in our following publications. And we will welcome your contributions and comments.
"Resilience is the process of adapting well to adversity, to trauma, tragedy, threat, or sources 
of significant stress, such as family problems or personal relationships, serious problems of health
or stressful work or financial situations. It means "bouncing" from a difficult experience, as if one
were a ball or a spring. Research has shown that resilience is ordinary, not extraordinary. People 
commonly show resilience. An example is the response of people in the United States to the terrorist
attacks of September 11, 2001 and their individual efforts to rebuild their lives. Being resilient 
does not mean that the person does not experience difficulties or anguish. Emotional pain and sadness
are common in people who have suffered great hardships or traumas in their lives. In fact, the road to
resilience is probably full of obstacles that affect our emotional state. Resilience is not a 
characteristic that people have or do not have. It includes behaviors, thoughts and actions that can 
be learned and developed by anyone".  Published by the American Psychological Association
