The Resilient Mind: The Psychology of Academic Resilience
Morales, Erik E.
Educational Forum, v72 n2 p152-167 2008
Using six years of data chronicling the experiences of 50 academically resilient college students, this article focuses on the seldom-researched area of the psychology of academic resilience. Ubiquitous stressors such as subpar public schooling and the lack of social and cultural capital; psychosocial issues that arise during the resilience journey; and the compensatory psychological responses necessary to cope with the stress and, ultimately, thrive within the academic environment are explored in this article. (Contains 2 tables.)
