Summary/Abstract: The issue of resilience is analysed both theoretically and according to the data obtained after a field research on a population of 600 people from Drobeta Turnu Severin. The information attests that the main factors, for the destabilisation of the urban population, are related to the affective, social and biological dimension of it. The research unravelled the personal and collective effects of sufferance, along with the strategies adopted for resolving the traumatising conditions. The overwhelming majority of the population are optimistic people, confident in their own forces, who appreciate that their life has been so far, generally, very successful.
