Amidst the efforts to understand the impact of occupational stress on military personnel, researchers have turned their attention to resilience. In a sample of active-duty Navy personnel, positive and negative coping strategies were explored as predictors of two resilience dichotomies (resilient vs. non-resilient).Positive coping strategies were expected to predict resilience, and negative coping strategies were expected to predict non-resilience.The results from two hierarchical binary logistic regression analyses demonstrated that seeking command support, praying/meditating, and arguing demonstrated statistically significant associations with resilience that were consistent with the hypotheses. Other coping strategies of interest, however, failed to demonstrate statistically significant associations with resilience.
