Abstract :Any strong earthquake as a stressor brings not only a lot of harmful effects to our lifeline in a moment, but also gives strong damages to different systems of individual, family and local community. It leads to even functional disorder or dysfunction of each system. The social system, however, restores the balance and is regenerated in consequence of a kind of homeostasis. This essay aims to examine the social process of restoration from the point of view of resilience which shows the power of system coping with crisis. Our findings are as follws. First, individual personality system with resilience could cope with serious crisis, reconstructing the meaning of life. Secondly, family system with resilience could enhance the level of cohesion, coping to the situations of difficulty. Thirdly, local community with resilience could cooperate with outside many associations and social network, recover eventually, and furthemore establish symbolic revival. But these findings are not nonclusive.
