CROSS-CULTURAL CONSULTATION LEADING TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF A VALID MEASURE OF YOUTH RESILIENCE: THE INTERNATIONAL RESILIENCE PROJECT
Languages of publication
In this paper, an innovative fourteen site, eleven countries, collaborative investigation of resilience is described. As a part of a larger mixed methods study to understand resilience as a social and ecological construct, a 58-item measure of resilience was developed. Piloting of the measure with 1451 youth ages 13-23 confirmed that the measure demonstrates good construct validity. In this paper the authors describe the study and the measure, and discuss implications for understanding resilience across cultures and contexts.
