Emotional resiliency has become a cutting-edge topic of research in the aftermath of disasters such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina and the devastating Haitian earthquake. As with almost any type of behavior, resiliency can be learned to help people rebound quickly and more efficiently from any traumatic situation.
