Coping with painful events and unpleasant emotions is a struggle for every human being. The ability to cope effectively with these events and emotions can be termed resilience (Blum, 1998). The study of resilience is based on strengths a person has and how difficulties in life can be overcome. It is this emphasis on strengths and positive assets that will be the focus of this model, rather than weakness or vulnerability. The focus of this study was to develop a model to aid researchers in measuring resilience in adolescents. Results provided evidence for a model containing sub dimensions of self-esteem, parental involvement, family relationships, other relationships, religion, neighborhood belonging, school belonging, and school safety.
