RESILIENCE Everyone needs opportunities to develop coping skills and it is important that individuals are not excessively sheltered from the situations that provide such challenges. Some of the characteristics of resilience that health professionals can recognize and use to encourage it include: • Secure attachments • Self-esteem • Belief in one’s own self-efﬁcacy • Realistic hope, whether or not mediated by faith • Use of ‘healthy’ defence mechanisms including humour and denial • Capacity to recognize achievements in the present • Ability to ﬁnd positive meaning in stressors • Good memories • Community support • One supportive person Even the existence of just one of these features can promote resilience and growth.
Denial serves to protect the person from the reality of their condition, but it also prevents them from accepting treatment. However, as symptoms progress the fantasy sustaining denial breaks down, and acceptance generates hope that, either recovery may be possible, or that at least death may be long delayed. Rumbold suggests hope may emerge: • From a straightforward transition from admitting the reality of their illness to afﬁrming a hope for recovery; or • From a period of despair following the breakdown of denial.
