PINA LOPEZ, Julio Alfonso. A critical analysis of the concept of resilience in psychology. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.3, pp.751-758. ISSN 1695-2294.

The concept of resilience in the psychology is analyzed, with special emphasis in Ibero-American authors who used it in their research. I argue how, once the authors' part of a logical confusion, this one become in a conceptual confusion, which in turn follows a methodological, concluding with one of interpretation confusions. A successive chain of confusions which allows justifying why resilience is a concept that is neither helpful nor relevant to psychology.

Keywords : Resilience; Psychology; Logical Confusion; Conceptual Confusion.
