dc.description.abstract The present study aimed to identify those resiliency factors that enabled Indian families to transform and adapt after the loss of a family member. Using a convenience sampling method, thirty families were identified. Open-ended questions and the following measurement scales were completed by the parent and an adolescent of each selected family: a biographical questionnaire, Social Support Index, Relative and Friend Support Index, Family Problem Solving Communication Index, Family Hardiness Index, The family Attachment and Changeability Index 8, and Family Time and Routine Index. Results show that open communication between family members, religion, support of relatives and friends, problem solving communication, family hardiness, mobilization of the family to get help, redefinition of the problem, family time and routine were the resiliency factors identified in this study. en_US
