RIPAR, Aline Aparecida; EVANGELISTA, Fabiana S. F.Q.  e  PAULA, Fräulein Vidigal de. Resilience and gender. Psicol inf. [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.12, pp.33-52. ISSN 1415-8809.

This research aims at verifying if there is a resilience profile that is more distinctive for male or female gender. Resilience, the ability to overcome obstacles, comprehends seven factors: emotion regulation, impulse control, optimism, environment analysis, auto-efficiency, and reaching out to people. We have assumed the hypothesis that individuals use facing strategies that are partially different, according to their gender. The research was carried out with 27 adolescents (male and female), from 14 to 17 years old, in São Bernardo do Campo - SP, who have answered the Resilience Rate Questionnaire: Reivich - Shatté/Barbosa. This questionnaire includes 56 items that evaluate the seven main resilience factors, and sociodemografic profile. The results show that both genders are similar for the optimism, and impulse control factors, but are significantly different when related to the auto-efficiency, and reaching out to people factors. We can conclude that some resilience aspects do not depend on the gender, but, in part, people choose strategies to face and overcome obstacles according to their gender characteristics.
