Abstract

Flourishing is one of the concepts in positive psychology that explains a person's condition that shows optimal development, a condition when all the functions within oneself are working well. This study is a qualitative phenomenological study with four survivors of the Imogiri Bantul flood in 2017 and 2019 as respondents. Data were analyzed using content analysis. Criterion sampling was employed. The findings showed that respondents' initial psychological impact was centered on fear of the future because the current carried all their belongings. Survivors also continued working on college assignments with existing facilities (engagement), doing many activities with the community, starts to meet people more frequently (i.e., friends) even though they rarely met before. Other than, survivorsto seek help neighbors (relationship), have more appreciation towards life, interpret life in a more caring way, and more grateful for the family's safety (meaning), begins to focus again to college, as well as be more active in activities in the environment (accomplishment). Factors that influence flourishing include the attention of family, friends, and neighbors during and after the flood. The social support provided by family and relatives by visiting others (silaturrahim) increases survivors' happiness and optimism in living life after the disaster.
