過往研究顯示，臺灣女性在生.職涯發展上較男性受限制，故本研究透過質性研究方法，來探究離婚女性成功適應逆境的動態歷程，以及所可能會遇到之困境的影響要素與適應關鍵。本研究以房仲業為例，並採用Patterson &Kelleher（2005）的韌性理論論點作為本研究分析的理論基礎，來觀察離婚女性在其適應逆境的歷程中，面臨極度逆境壓力下的韌性展現。藉由深度訪談的方式蒐集及分析資料，並且採用韌性內涵的的六個階段，奠定訪談問題架構及設計，強化且深入探討女性是如何運用「韌性」來發揮積極的效果而渡過難關，且成功翻轉人生。成功的定義過於廣泛，也沒有絕對，因此本研究欲探討的重點為「成功的翻轉」、「脫離困境」的過程關鍵，並非探討如何邁向成功的人生。是故，本研究經由五位在過往曾經有過失婚、失業、重大疾病、大量負債等生活受重大威脅之困境，且目前已脫離困境，並生活無虞、收入穩定，成為年收百萬的女性房仲人員做為個案探討，將其故事和經歷加以統整並分析，發現女性在面對生.職涯困境時，除了自身必須擁有正向觀念，對於子女的輔育及信仰的寄託是克服逆境的重要輔助力，並且搭配合適的職場環境便能順利走出逆境、實現自我，研究結果可供相關女性工作者及相關企業輔導單位參考，幫助她們自我調適並走過生.職涯的困境與挑戰。 According to previous studies, the career development of female is much more limited than that of male in Taiwan.
