Background and objective: Nowadays, resiliance concept, which often reffer to social science, applies certain principals, the ability to recover and survive is one of its ideal forms. Furthermore, there are various and sometimes opposite values within all social systems. The fact that an issue is prioritize than the other or keeping current situation is prior to any other ones should be considere. Therefore, this study emphasised on explanation and analysis the social resilience in the field of natural disasters management.
Method: This research is a revisional study by using various library and internet resources; totally, from a total of 145 papers and books, 90 valid ones and related ones about social resilience were considered and analyzed.
Findings: According to the discussed issues in this study, three important aspects of social resilience were identified as follow: 1. the ability of social performers to cope with and overcome all the obvious difficulties; 2. their capabilities to learn from past experiences and to modify them in order to overcome new challanges in the future (adaptive capacities) , and; (3) their ability to create institutions to foster individual welfare and sustainable powerful society against current and and future crises (transformational capacities).
Conclusion: The results show that social resilience is perceived as a dynamic process rather than a certain status or the characteristics of an entity and social being, which at different times and locations have different strategies and plans to deal with disaster. A study of social resilience emphasizes the enclusion of social performers in their own environment and society. Thus, this is a rational concept rather than an intrinsic concept. Social learning, participatory decision making and collective transformation processes are recognized as the main aspects of social resilience. Social resilience is not only a dynamic concept but a kind of deep political understanding.
