Resilience stands at the limits of what it means to be human. The opposite of vulnerability, it defines qualities that are both relational and innately enforced. Mucci explores contemporary therapeutic approaches to intergenerational trauma, focusing on the key principles that can foster resilience and healing. She looks through the prism of attachment, neuroscience, memory, literary memoir and other frameworks to ask what traits constitute a predisposition to resilience – in individuals, and in society.
