Main Article Content

Abstract

The teenage years are the times that are most susceptible to adaptation problems
as noticed by psychologists. Adaptation problems in the development of adolescents’
growth result in physical and mental health problems. Physical and mental health problems
of adolescents can be remedied by the applications of Buddhist influenced factors that
enable resilience. Buddhist influenced factors are sources or conditions for arising of the
right views which can facilitate resilience. Resilience is important because as positive
psychology explains it is the human capacity to face, overcome, and be strengthened by
(or even transformed by) the challenges of life. Therefore, Buddhism enables resilience in
adolescents’ physical and mental health development.
