Product Details

Why do some adolescents adjust or recover and others do not? Now, there is a brief tool to profile personal strengths, as well as vulnerability that is theoretically based and psychometrically sound.

Resiliency Scales for Children and Adolescents contains:

Three stand-alone scales of 19–24 questions each. Each scale contains subscales that are theoretically grounded.

  1. Sense of Mastery Scale: Optimism, Self-Efficacy, Adaptability
  2. Sense of Relatedness Scale: Trust, Support, Comfort, Tolerance
  3. Emotional Reactivity Scale: Sensitivity, Recovery, Impairment

Why assess resiliency?

  • Build positive psychology into your assessment practice.
  • Resiliency levels influence expected outcomes of many disorders.
  • Resiliency skills can be taught as an intervention strategy.
  • Patterns of strengths within the resiliency domain (mastery, relatedness, reactivity) can influence intervention goals.
  • Children with depression or anxiety may have different prognoses and lengths of care depending on their level of resiliency.
  • Victims of school bullying may respond differently depending on their resiliency profile.
  • Course of care may vary with resiliency profile for children with adjustment reactions to divorce, loss, or other life events.
  • Teens with posttraumatic stress disorder may respond differently depending on their resiliency profile.
  • Use together with any symptom based measure to obtain a balanced view of the teen.

Resiliency Scales for Children and Adolescents is ideal for the clinical or school psychologist, social worker or counsellor because it is

Flexible

  • Quick-to-administer.
  • Use separately, together, or in conjunction with any symptom-based measure to obtain a balanced view of the teen.

Child and Adolescent friendly

  • Allows children to focus on strengths as well as symptoms and vulnerabilities.
  • Results easily interpreted and discussed with adolescents, teachers and parents.
  • May be used to start assessment to establish rapport and to initiate a positive helping relationship. 

Treatment focused

  • Quickly screens for personal strengths.
  • Normed with the Beck Youth Inventories-Second Edition, to link a Resiliency Profile with specific symptoms for more targeted treatment planning.
  • Helps clinician generate and prioritize intervention strategies.
  • Systematically benchmark and monitor responses to interventions in terms of strength enhancement as well as symptom reduction.
