What leads some people to cope with traumatic experiences in a more resilient way than others? Are some people more predisposed to reacting to traumatic experiences in less resilient ways? What can we learn from people who are more resilient; and how can this learning be transferred to those requiring to develop resilience, in order to overcome traumatic experiences?
