ABSTRACT Tras analizar críticamente el desarrollo histórico del concepto de resiliencia en la psicología y la psiquiatría, proponemos no considerar la resiliencia como una variable psicológica en sí misma. En cambio, sugerimos considerar resilientes a todas las personas que presentan un resultado inesperado frente a una determinada situación adversa, independientemente de las causas de ese resultado. Ofrecemos además una distinción entre factores protectores, factores de recuperación y factores de control conductual. Finalmente, discutimos las implicaciones de estas propuestas para la investigación

    ABSTRACT: This paper analyzes the implications of promoting protective resources through family and school in Yucatec Maya migrant students. They operate in conditions of poverty, social exclusion, school violence, unwanted pregnancies and alcohol and tobacco addiction that sometimes lead them to dropout, thus increasing the adverse situation in which they find themselves. Hence the importance of promoting in these students, while they are still in high school, the development of resilient abilities and personal resources whose purpose is to improve their positive adjustment to school and consequently, their own personal and family circumstances.

    ABSTRACT: Among the instruments developed for studying resilience, the Resilience Scale for Adults (RSA) has shown a potential to explain and intervene in psychosocial work-related phenomena. Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the factorial validation of the RSA to adults who are civil servants. Therefore it focalize adults that experience the work condition in the organizational environment. A confirmatory factor analysis was performed. The results indicated that the RSA six-factor solution was confirmed with factors named: Perception of Self, Planned Future, Social Competence, Structured Style, Familiar Cohesion and Social Resources. Its validity and reliability for use among workers make it useful to support management decisions. The implications, limitations and contributions of the study are discussed, with suggestions for future research.
