Protocol - Psychological Resilience - Child

Add to My Toolkit
Description

A 26-item measure of the resources available to children that may increase their resilience. The Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM-28) has three sub-scales: individual capacities/resources, relationships with primary caregivers and contextual factors that facilitate a sense of belonging.

Specific Instructions

The CYRM is free for non-profit research use only. If your intention is to use the instrument in a for profit or commercial environment please visit the CYRM website (http://cyrm.resilienceresearch.org/download/) or email rrc@dal.ca to request permission to use this instrument. You will be asked to provide a few details about yourself and how you plan to use the CYRM.

We recommend that researchers complete the questionnaire with children individually (not in a group setting or with their parents or guardians). It is important that all questions be read to participants as they work through the measure to ensure the children understand each question. Researchers should also record the answer for the participant but take care to ensure that participants are engaged.
