R esilience may be thought of as the ability to rebound from adversity. It has recently emerged as an essential element in the understanding of the interaction of stress and human behavior. Beginning in 1990, our research team endeavored to unlock the secrets of human resilience. Beginning with structural equation modeling, then integrating case study empiricism, we were able to identify one aspect of the human psyche that proved to be remarkably inhibiting and toxic. At the same time, we were able to identify five psychological and behavioral factors that appear to be important predictors of human resilience. These factors are referred as ?psychological body armor?. This paper will discuss our findings in conjunction with the development of the Johns Hopkins? Model of Human Resilience. Finally, implications of human resilience for physical medicine will be discussed.
