  • CRYSTAL- “Studies of resilience in victims of violence have identified protective factors associated with healthier outcomes but have a number of limitations for understanding how individuals exposed to violence adapt and even thrive” (Grych, Hamby, & Banyard,2015).  “The term “resilience” has been used to refer both to healthy functioning after exposure to significant adversity and to the capacities needed to adapt successfully to significant adversity. Resilience is best understood as a dynamic process rather than a stable quality of a person because it depends on the constellation of stressors, risk, and protective factors that characterize the person’s life at a particular time” (Grych, Hamby, & Banyard,2015). “The Resilience Portfolio Model is a strengths-based framework designed to provide a holistic understanding of the protective factors and processes that promote resilience in children and adults exposed to violence. It proposes that the density and diversity of resources and assets available to individuals (their resilience portfolio) shapes their responses to violence, and identifies 3 higher-order functional categories of strengths that are proposed to be particularly salient for resilience: regulatory, interpersonal, and meaning-making strengths” (Grych, Hamby, & Banyard,2015). I think some people just have a better mindset to handle hard times or violence. They have a voice inside themselves that tells them that they can get through what ever it is they are going through and come out the other side ok. I think that people over time can become resilient because after going through certain things in life they are able to overcome. An example of this is a child with a bad home life growing up to make something of themselves and helping others in the same situation do the do the same.

 

 

  • KAMESHA- What is resilience? The textbook states that “resilience refers to humans’ amazing ability to bounce back and even thrive in the face of serious life challenges.” (Baumgardner & Crothers, 2009) Researchers also suggest that resilience is a widely shared human capacity that many people may not know they have until they are confronted with trauma or crisis. (Baumgardner & Crothers, 2009) Like my cousin just recently lost everything due to her house catching on fire. The only thing her and her daughter had been the clothes on their backs, they didn’t even have a pair of shoes because they ran out of the house barefooted. She called me crying in the phone yelling that her house was on fire and that she had lost everything. That next morning, she came to my house and we begin to make a list of all the stuff that she had lost in the fire for the insurance company. I watched my cousin go from nothing to going to the Salvation Army to buy her some work clothes and shoes, to going to work and finding a new house and rebuilding her life all with a smile on her face. She didn’t complain or want people to call her a victim. I remember telling her how proud and amazed I was at her. Because I don’t know if I could handle losing everything the way she did and bounce back the way she did. I do believe that a person can learn how to be resilient, like a child growing up in poverty, with parents who are addicted to drugs and alcohol can grow up to be successful adults and are drug free. They didn’t use their bad childhood as an excuse to not be successful, positive adults.

For this annotated bibliography you will need to locate at least 5 relevant journal articles from Keiser’s online library (at least one from Keiser library and you may also use other scholarly resource cites). Not all websites are scholarly so be careful here. Sites like Wikipedia and about.com are not scholarly though they may be helpful. MINIMUM OF 200 WORDS EACH ENTRY.

What is an annotated bibliography?

It is an organized list of sources (referenced in APA format), such as books, journals, newspapers, magazines, reputable web pages, etc., each of which is followed by a summary or description of the source.

Annotations may consist of all or part of the following list of items, depending on the purpose of the bibliography:

  • describe the content (focus) of the source
  • describe the usefulness of the source
  • evaluate the reliability of the source
  • discuss any conclusions the author(s) may have made
  • note key points from the article relevant to your final project
  • describe your reaction to the source

What does an annotated bibliography look like?

The following in an example source from an annotated bibliography:

Waite, L. J., Goldschneider, F. K., & Witsberger, C. (1986). Nonfamily living and the erosion of traditional family orientations among young adults. American Sociological Review, 51 (4), 541-554.

The authors, researchers at the Rand Corporation and Brown University, use data from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Young Women and Young Men to test their hypothesis that nonfamily living by young adults alters their attitudes, values, plans, and expectations, moving them away from their belief in traditional sex roles. They find their hypothesis strongly supported in young females, while the effects were fewer in studies of young males. Increasing the time away from parents before marrying increased individualism, self-sufficiency, and changes in attitudes about families. In contrast, an earlier study by Williams cited below shows no significant gender differences in sex role attitudes as a result of nonfamily living.

Your annotated bibliography should be submitted by the last day of week 2.

**Also, remember, these bibliographic summaries must also be in your own words or it is considered to be plagiarism, the same as with a paper or any other writing.
