Abstract


Die studie van gesinsveerkragtigheid het in die afgelope twee dekades in die veld van gesinsielkunde in momentum toegeneem. Hierdie artikel fokus op die ontwik keling van die Veerkragtigheidsmodel van Gesinstres, Skikking en Aanpassing oor tyd. Hierdie model het 'n lang geskiedenis wat tot 1946 terugdateer en deur navorsing oor dekades heen ondersteun word. Elk van die modelle wat die Veerkragtigheidsmodel voorafgaan word verduidelik. Die faktore waaruit hierdie model bestaan is empiries getoets en verbandhoudende meetinstrumente is ontwikkel om sodoende veerkragtig heidsfaktore binne die gesinskonteks te evalueer. Die moontlike toepaslikheid van hierdie model vir die Suid-Afrikaanse konteks word ook gedebateer.

The study of family resilience has gained momentum within the field of family psychology over the last two decades. This paper focuses on the development of the Resiliency Model of Family Stress, Adjustment and Adaptation, which has a long history and is substantiated by research dating back to 1946. The factors comprising the model have been empirically tested, and related measuring instruments have been developed in order to evaluate resiliency factors within the family context. Each of the Resiliency Model's antecedent models is outlined here, while its potential relevance to the South African context is also debated.
