AbstractThe primary purpose of this study was to identify resiliency factors evident in parentally bereaved children and adolescents identified as "holis-tically well." The population for this study consisted of 7 parentally bereaved children and adolescents between the ages of 5 and 18 who were referred by the Children to Children support program for grieving youth. The instruments used in this study were specifically developed to assess holistic wellness and evidence of resiliency factors. The most prevalent resiliency factors evident in parentally bereaved children and adolescents identified as holistically well were: Constitutional Resiliency Factors of: social competence, positive personality characteristics, sense of purpose and hope, problem-solving skills, and autonomy. Resiliency Factors within the Home Environment of: caring and support, high parental expectations, and encouragement of participation in family.
