Drive to Thrive Theory: Processes and Outcomes from a Flexibility Perspective

Project: Research project

Project Details


The ultimate goal of this project was to provide a new framework and empirical evidence for explaining human stress resilience using the drive to thrive theory and the framework of regulatory flexibility. Study 1 aimed to critically review the current literature on the strategies of sustaining everyday life fabrics across different traumatic and chronic stressful conditions and evaluate the utility of the three sequential components of regulatory flexibility in explaining everyday adaptation. Study 2 aimed to develop a multi-method approach to examine and validate emotional flexibility as a potential outcome measure of stress resilience in everyday life.
