RUIZ PARRAGA, Gema Teresa  and  LOPEZ MARTINEZ, Alicia Eva. Psychological resilience and chronic pain. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.2, pp.1-11. ISSN 1989-3809.

The study of resilience continues to command wide-ranging interest, despite its long history. However, there is no universally accepted definition of resilience, despite its undoubted importance in the field of health. In this context, attention is being paid to the role played by resilience in the adaptation to physical diseases, including chronic pain. The few studies on this topic show resilience as a relevant variable in adjustment to chronic pain. Nevertheless, definitive conclusions cannot be formed due to differences in the conceptualization and measurement of this variable across different studies. Thus, further research in this area is needed.

Keywords : Resilience; Conceptualization; Chronic Pain; Adjustment.
