Abstract: El concepto de Resiliencia en psicología se toma de la ingeniería de materiales para definir la propiedad de aquellos materiales que son capaces de soportar grandes dosis de presión sin romperse, para cuando cese esa presión volver a su estado natural. Esta cualidad la toma la psicología para definir a aquellos individuos que aun habiendo vivido situaciones adversas y de mucho estrés, son capaces no sólo de sobreponerse a éstas sino ser transformados por ellas. Esto ocurre también en los cuidadores dependientes que presentan enfermedad de Alzheimer.
The concept of Resilience is defined as the property of materials that makes theme resistant to big amount of pressure (physically speaking). In this way, psychology field appropiates this term to refer to individuals that, though having lived traumatic and stressful situations, they are able to pull their self together and get over these situations; being able to experience an inner growth sensation. In these manners, this can be extrapolated to most Alzheimer´s caregivers, a labor that, having great dose of chronic stress, most of the carers come upon positive consequences. Anyway, in this work, despite describing in depth the concepts of resilience and care-giving, it is briefly expound a proposal of a intervention program as a way of managing the negative consequences of the care-giving.
