This study identifies the resilience factors and their contributions to each phase of the stress-related recovery process, and examines their effects on subjective adjustment as well as physical and mental health. The data obtained from 263 Japanese undergraduates showed that (1) resilience factors contributing to the stages before exposure to the stressor and after recovering from stressful situations included interpersonal items affecting subjective adjustment; and (2) the factors related to the stressor-exposure period included cognitive coping strategies that influenced physical and mental health during such adversities. These results suggest that developing interventions in accordance with the individual’s recovery process may be effective in increasing resilience.
