Stress and the Resilience Model
Arnetz and his colleagues have developed a four-level model to look at the different aspects of stress and resilience: (1) the individual, (2) the group or team, (3) the agency or organization, and (4) the society. Using this model as a base, the next key question was to consider how best to measure resilience at each of these levels. Additionally, what are the benefits of resilience within each of these components, and how do they relate to each other?
At the individual level, it is important to understand that everyone faces challenges in their lives and that not all stress is bad. Challenges
