This is the mainstream psychological view of resilience, that is, resilience is defined in terms of a person's capacity to avoid psychopathology despite difficult circumstances. Psychological stressors or "risk factors" are often considered to be experiences of major acute or chronic stress such as a death of someone else, chronic illness, sexual, physical or emotional abuse, fear, unemployment, and community violence.
