Resilience, refers to a property of the materials by which an elastic object, that is to say a spring or a spring, which is subjected to a certain pressure or force, is capable, once said pressure ceases, to recover its original form . If we transfer this concept to the world of Psychology and Social Sciences, we refer to the ability of people to resist and recover, in adverse circumstances, whether they are individual, or psychosocial.
