A Strategy to Strengthen Resilience for the Mental Health Management of Modern Korean Women: Focused on Korean Women s Depression Related Issues

  • 45

This study aims to develop strategies for enhancing the resilience of Korean women by reducing risk factors and promoting protective factors. To this end, resilience-related literature was reviewed and Korean women’s depression-related issues were explored in view of biological and psychosocial factors. The reason why depression is a gender·age disease is ascribable to hormone-related biological factors (e.g., unbalance in estrogen) and psychosocial stress factors. Considering that women are inherently vulnerable to such biologically induced depression, there is a need to develop and disseminate prophylactic education and intervention programs before its onset. It is also necessary to set up legal and institutional infrastructure to promote protective factors at the family and social levels, such as countermeasures against domestic and gender-based violence, as well as fundamental measures to promote family and workplace culture tailored to the current situation and existing problems in Korea.
