Abstract #303
Subjective Contextual Resilience Assessment: Comparison of Three Different Populations
Presenter: Helena Hernansaiz-Garrido Co - Presenters: Rocío Rodríguez-Rey, Jesús Alonso-Tapia, Miguel Ángel Ruiz-Díaz, Carmen Nieto-Vizcaíno  
Resilience can be shown in different degrees across different kinds of adversity. No measure considering different contexts exists, so we validated a 20-item Subjective Contextual Resilience Scale (SCRS) with five problem areas –work, relationships, own health, close person health and economy. It was completed by 423 adults with three different conditions (health issues, parents of children with health or developmental issues and healthy adults) along with CDRISC10 and BRS questionnaire. We tested a 5x1 hierarchical factor model and conducted reliability and correlation analyses, and ANOVAs.The 5x1 factor structure was well defined, and reliability was good for all measures in all samples except for SCRS economic area –acceptable only in the healthy sample. Correlations among measures were acceptable, the highest ones being between SCRS –and its subscales– and BRS. There were no mean differences among samples in any measure including SCRS subscales, but a difference emerged in the work and relationships areas when comparing healthy adults to adults with issues (them or their children), showing greater resilience those with issues. There were also mean differences among SCRS’ subscales in all subsamples.Our contextual scale, therefore, can be used to measure resilience within different contexts and across different types of populations.
