This session presents the findings of an innovative research study that found a set of 83 "trauma truisms” related to buffering, or protective mechanisms, which contribute to resilience from the trauma associated with living in conditions of the chronic threat from terror and war.   This research was carried out in Israel with a group of the country’s leading trauma experts.  The session reports on the process by which an expert panel generated this set of truisms. Each has practice implications and can be translated into behaviors that enhance the likelihood of resilience in the face of trauma.
