Abstract

Acts of terrorism carried out by terrorists have an impact on the families of the terrorists, especially if their families
remain stay in their environment. The families of the terrorists experience many changes following the terrorism
committed by their family member(s) and even putting the families in a crisis. This research aims to obtain a
description of family resilience in the families of terrorists following a terrorism. This research uses a qualitative
approach with a case study method. The data collection techniques used were direct observation and interview
with the family (both parents of the terrorist/perpetrators). Data triangulation was done with the significant others
(cousins of the terrorist/perpetrator and local public figures). The research subjects were a particular family
consisting of a father, a mother, and a child (the child was the perpetrator of a terrorism). The results showed that
the resilience aspects of the belief system in the family of the terrorist can interpret all events well, organizational
patterns that can adapt to situations but with a less open communication to one another. The family of the terrorist
have gone through the process of becoming resilient and have used the strength and resources available to the
family to increase resilience in the family, especially with respect to the social stigma of society given to the
family following the terrorism.
