Niki Nearchou, PhD presented her research to the UCD School of Psychology

After over 50 years of numerous studies on resilience we would expect that researchers should have concluded whether resilience is a dynamic process or a personality trait. Yet, the debate is ongoing with robust arguments supporting both theoretical perspectives. Dr Niki Nearchou critically discusses the past and contemporary resilience literature and proposes a new perspective building on an empirical model that aims to bridge this gap.
