Abstract

A mixed methodological approach was used to explore the phenomena of resilience and thriving in 102 Latino/a community members in a west coast county in the United States. Thematic Analysis of open-ended question responses about resilience and thriving highlighted the relationship between these constructs and revealed themes of both internal and external strategies for resilience and thriving. Findings also revealed difficulty in participants’ differentiation between resilience and thriving. Multiple hierarchical regression analyses examined the predictive contributions of factors correlated with resilience for thriving. Implications, limitations, and directions for future research are discussed.
