CASTELLANO-TEJEDOR, Carmina; BLASCO-BLASCO, Tomás; PEREZ-CAMPDEPADROS, Marta  and  CAPDEVILA, Lluís. Making sense of resilience: a review from the field of paediatric psycho-oncology and a proposal of a model for its study. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.3, pp.865-877. ISSN 1695-2294.

This article is intended to review the concept of resilience from the scope of paediatric psycho-oncology. The origin, its different definitions and its suitability of application in the field of serious physical illness - such as cancer - will be analyzed. Furthermore, the differences between resilience and other concepts commonly associated or confused with it, such as post-traumatic growth or benefit finding, will be discussed. Finally, a proposal for a comprehensive model of resilience in paediatric cancer will be put forward.

Keywords : resilience; childhood cancer; psycho-oncology; post-traumatic growth; benefit finding.
