Resiliency Scales for Children and Adolescents

S. Prince-Embury


New Expanded Age Range 9 to 18 years

Why do some children and adolescents adjust or recover and others do not? Now, you have 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 forms: Three stand-alone scales of 19 - 24 questions each. Each scale contains subscales that are theoretically grounded.

  • Sense of Mastery Scale

       Optimism, Self-Efficacy, Adaptivity

  • Sense of Relatedness Scale

       Trust, Support, Comfort, Tolerance

  • 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 post-traumatic 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:

  • 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.

Ideal when used with:

  • Beck Youth Inventories – Second Edition: Relate Resiliency Profile to Symptom Profile for treatment planning.
  • Reynolds Bully Victimizations Scales: Generate interventions based on strength enhancement to counter bullying and victimisation.
  • Brown ADD Scales: Generate interventions to address emotional reactivity and low sense of mastery that may accompany ADHD.
