The resilience and its relation to the people who acquired physical deficiency socio demographic economical profile
Objective: to investigate the association between the socio demographic and economical factors to the resilience of people who acquired physical deficiency. Methodology: it is about a descriptive and exploratory design with the quantitative approach, developed in the Foundation Center for Integrated Support for patients with Disabilities in João Pessoa/PB, with 69 physical deficient people. Results: The found resilience average among the population was of 138.26. In the socio demographic and economical characteristics considered, only the gender and schooling showed statistical inferences on the participants’ resilience, where the condition to being men and have a satisfactory schooling level favored the adaptive capacity development. Conclusion: in this study, in despite of the low income profile and poor education, the individuals showed high resilience scores when compared to other populations. It is believed that the resilience does not depend on some factors, taking us to think this construct as a trait that can be constructed by any individual.
