Assessing Resilience across Cultures Using Mixed Methods: Construction of the Child and Youth Resilience Measure
Ungar, Michael; Liebenberg, Linda
Journal of Mixed Methods Research, v5 n2 p126-149 Apr 2011
An international team of investigators in 11 countries have worked collaboratively to develop a culturally and contextually relevant measure of youth resilience, the Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM-28). The team used a mixed methods design that facilitated understanding of both common and unique aspects of resilience across cultures. Quantitative and qualitative stages to its development ensure the CYRM-28 has good content-related validity across research sites. Crossover comparison analyses of the findings from the quantitative administration of the pilot measure with 1,451 youth and qualitative interviews with 89 youth support the CYRM-28 as a culturally sensitive measure of youth resilience. The implications of this mixed methods approach to the development of measures for cross-cultural research are discussed. (Contains 1 figure, 4 tables, and 2 notes.)
