The Covid-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the Putting-Out System (POS) based batik artisans business. This impact has implications for the psychology of artisans, including anxiety, depression and stress. Psychological resilience as a strategy for POS based artisans can survive and continue to exist. The purpose of this paper is to explain the psychological resilience of POS based batik artisans during the Covid-19 pandemic. This paper uses Reivich and Shatte's resilience theory which describes resilience as the ability to survive in a healthy and productive way. The method used is a review of literature and secondary data sourced from scientific publication articles and statistical data. Every individual has the ability to survive in very difficult situations by maximizing every supporting factor in himself to increase resilience. Resilience plays an important role for batik artisans during a pandemic, this is shown by the ability to adapt in changing circumstances by taking preventive measures by batik artisans in order to develop their resilience factors.
