Broadening the definition of resilience and “reappraising” the use of appetitive motivation

  • Melissa Soenke (a1), Mary-Frances O'Connor (a2) and Jeff Greenberg (a2)
Abstract

Kalisch et al.'s PASTOR model synthesizes current knowledge of resilience, focusing on mechanisms as a common pathway to outcomes and highlighting neuroscience as a method for exploring this. We propose the model broaden its definition of resiliency to include positive indices of recovery, include positive affect as a mechanism, and approach motivation as distinct from overcoming aversive motivation.
