What Is Resilience?

RTI founder Glenn Schiraldi, Ph.D., describes resilience as those strengths of mind and character, both innate and developed, which enable us to respond well to adversity.

Specifically,  resilience helps us to:

  • Survive and rebound from difficult times
  • Optimize mental fitness and performance under pressure
  • Transform negative moods
  • Increase happiness and enjoyment throughout our lives
