Resilience in Catastrophes, Disasters and Emergencies

Socio-scientific Perspectives


Resilience is a widely discussed topic in various fields of application. Within the context of socio-scientific disaster research and psychological research on traumatic events, the concept has been used since the late 1970s. Since then, some important and quite remarkable transformations have occurred which have changed the concept, its application, and its scope.
