This study aimed to identify the significant protective factors that are likely to facilitate the development of Korean adolescents’ resilience. The participants were 2,677 students in Korea, among whom 442 were receving support from social welfare agencies. The results of hierarchical regression analysis show that the school adaptation variance was largely accounted for by protective factors rather than by risk factors. In addition, the results of logistic regression analysis indicate that the hope, teacher support, and meaning of life variables significantly distinguished the resilient group from the maladaptive group. Implications for counselors are discussed.
