Resilience refers to the ability to adapt, bounce back, and thrive in the face of adversity. It enables individuals to confront life's obstacles more flexibly, promoting their personal development and overall well-being.

The Brief Resilience Scale is a tool designed to measure an individual's ability to bounce back or recover from stress or adverse events. The scale evaluates one's tendency to maintain a sense of well-being and recover from challenges in a short span.
