Resiliency: Bouncing Back After a Setback

Certain individuals appear to succeed against all odds. Despite severe hardships such as living through war, witnessing the death of a loved one, having a chronic illness, being a victim of abuse, or dealing with unemployment, certain people not only adapt but actually thrive.
