Measuring Resilience: Available Measures and Key Considerations
Speaker: Linda Liebenberg
While the measurement of resilience is a relatively new field, there are an increasing number of measures available to researchers. In selecting an instrument, researchers are confronted by a host of questions not least of which include the reliability and validity of the measure as well as the measure’s relevance to the study question. This workshop will present an overview of resilience scales available for use in quantitative research. This workshop will highlight the scope of available options together with strengths and caveats to be aware of in selecting instruments for use. The workshop will consider the development and validation of various instruments, the populations for which they have been developed and the resilience components they are best suited to measure. The workshop will also highlight key components for researchers to take into consideration when selecting measures for use in research.
