This chapter examines a model of family resilience it applies to the setting of palliative care. It attempts to address a question about the characteristics of resilience in families and describes a recently developed model for understanding families in palliative care. It explains the concept and the underlying principles of so-called Family Focused Grief Therapy. It also suggests that the developmental life cycle of the family and its functioning as a group are key parameters in the conceptualization of family resilience.
