In recent years, people's psychological functioning and adjustment have been affected by health conditions, the political and social crisis, which has generated economic and labor instability, causing mood and affect problems to have essential repercussions on people's mood, especially in women. It is important to underline that there are still limited empirical studies that show how a resilience plan improves positive psychological functioning in women. Under this problematic context, this research aims to identify the characteristics of resilience and psychological functioning and subsequently develop an intervention proposal. It was a propositional study with a non-experimental design, in which 169 mothers participated. Of these, 66.9% presented difficulties in their resilience, 66.8% had difficulties in their psychological functioning, and women with higher education showed better conditions of psychological functioning. These results constitute essential support in the elaboration of the proposal on resilience to increase the capacities of psychological functioning and to promote the adequate development of resources and coping and adaptability strategies in this group of mothers.
