Resilience is a term popular across many disciplines – psychology, medicine, education, and business,  just to name a few. The main question people ask regarding resilience is: “Why do some people suffer real hardships and not falter?”

To answer this question, Patrick Slowinski will make use of Harvard University research findings.
