Even though international research has shifted from problem-driven to strength-based approach such as resilience, very little is known in a non-Western context, Turkey. As a result, this paper aims to fill research gaps in existing peer-reviewed literature by targeting to promote more effective interventions and programs with regard to resilience approach in Turkey. A critical systematic review of available literature was carried out based on peer-reviewed articles published in English and Turkish using PubMed, Ovid, EBSCO HOST, ERIC, ProQuest databases, and hand searching. Four hundred fifty-two articles were retrieved of which 34 met the inclusion criteria. Results depict that the majority of studies solely employed individual-based resilience approach. Even though international resilience research has begun to match resilience to socio-ecological perspective, Turkish scholars hardly do so. Only pointing out this gap in resilience research is addressed, will social workers be help enabling Turkish individuals to fuel resilience.
