Para entender mejor su capacidad de lidiar con su ambiente... (I guess is how I would translate it, but I would need to see the full context.)

What is las referring to here?

Arreglarselas is a set phrase meaning to deal with, cope with, handle, or manage. I don't think the las refers to anything in particular, but it gives me comfort to pretend that it replaces "las cosas."

I'll try, and then as usual some native speakers can fix it.

. . . para entender mejor su capacidad de hacer frente a sus circunstancias.
