Assessing and Promoting Resilience: An Additional Tool to Address the Increasing Number of College Students with Psychological Problems
Hartley, Michael T.
Journal of College Counseling, v15 n1 p37-51 April 2012
This study examined the assessment of resilience in undergraduate college students. Multigroup comparisons of the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC; Connor & Davidson, 2003) were performed on general population students and students recruited from campus mental health offices offering college counseling, psychiatric-support, and disability-support services. Results found that the 10-item CD-RISC demonstrated strong fit and reliability, with significantly higher scores for general population students. Implications for college counseling include assessing and promoting resilience on campuses. (Contains 3 tables.)
