SANCHEZ-TERUEL, David  and  ROBLES-BELLO, Mª Auxiliadora. Personality and resilience in a special corps of the National Police in Spain. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.2, pp.75-81. ISSN 2174-0534.

The relationship between socio-demographic data, personality, and resilience is assessed in a sample of 348 male police intervention units (PIU) in Spain (N = 348) between 23 and 38 years (M = 26.88, SD = 3.12). The results showed that age and education, along with dominance, conscientiousness, perseverance, impulse control, and emotions were closely related to resilience. In addition, 66% of the variance in resilience would be given by four variables: age and academic level and the determination and control of emotions. The importance of some socio-demographic and individual differences as predictors of the level of resilience in specialized police professionals' variables is discussed and some ways to work are open to the study of resilience in other professional groups constantly exposed to situations of extreme adversity.

Keywords : Resilience; Socio-demographic variables; Personality; Policemen; Correlational.
