  • "An optimal recovery involves not just returning to an initial equilibrium point. Rather, by adapting to new circumstances and learning from the disaster experience, higher levels of functioning (and thereby resilience) can be attained (Kimhi & Shamai, 2004; Pooley, Cohen, & O’Connor, 2006; Sonn & Fisher, 1998). This is the property of creativity (Kimhi & Shamai, 2004) and is represented by a gain in resilience achieved as part of the recovery process (Figure 1)." (p. 17)
