Measuring Resilience.
O'Neal, Marcia R.
Locating and selecting an instrument that measures resilience is no simple task. This document provides information about several measures of resilience or hardiness that have been used in recent years. The discussion of each measure includes information about its origins, a description of the measure and its uses, and a discussion of the psychometric properties of the measure. The following are described: (1) Personal Views Survey III (Hardiness Institute, 1985); (2) Cognitive Hardiness Scale (K. Nowack 1989); (3) Psychological Hardiness Scale (S. Younkin and N. Betz, 1996); (4) Resilience Scale (G. Wagnild and H. Young, 1993); (5) Resiliency Scale (C. Jew, K. Green, and J. Kroger, 1999); (6) Personal Resilience Questionnaire and Organizational Resilience Questionnaire (D. Conner, 1993); and (7) Family Hardiness Index (H. McCubbin, A. Thompson, and M. McCubbin, 1996).
