Summary or Abstract : Social support, level of secure attachment, optimism, psychological equilibrium (meaning making) locus of control, and spiritual well-being were examined in a sample of 221 female trauma survivors residing in the Northeast. These variables were chosen as related to or representative of three differing theortetical orientations: Object Relations, Cognitive Processing, and Personality. Participants were adult women (23-58) who had suffered either physical and/or sexual abuse before the age of 18. Resiliency was measured by a combined index of the Resilience Scale (Wagnild and Young, 1993), and the Global Severity Index of the Brief Symptom Inventory (Derogatis, 1982). A regression was conducted to assess relative contribution of the six variables when examined collectively. After controlling for abuse type, significant predictors included meaning making, optimism, social support and spiritual well-being. A second regression was conducted to include individual differences such as age and level of education to assess for possible interaction. After controlling for abuse type, meaning making, optimism, spiritual well-being, level of secure attachment, and level of education interacting with social support were significant. There was also a significance for type and severity of abuse as predictive of resilience. Meaning Making held the most predominant significance in the study, of all the variables, and the discussion detailed how meaning might relate or be distinct from some of the other processes, including mastery, which in this study did not appear as significant. Clinical and theoretical implications were discussed. An argument was presented for the necessity of integrating meaning making in treatment, regardless of theoretical orientation or type of therapeutic intervention practiced. However, therapeutic practice that predominantly uses meaning making in supportive therapeutic relationships were highlighted, for example, the potential benefit of psychodynamic or existential psychotherapy..
