A resource is the term used to describe a person's abilities and idiosyncrasies that can be useful in his or her life. These can be, for example, positive memories, preferences, interests and hobbies. Resources are also important in therapy and hypnosis. In hypnosis, for example, they are used as positive reinforcers in the suggestions. Especially in psychological crises and stressful times, resources are an important source of support and hold.
