Abstract #332
The Resilience Report: Therapeutic Use of Measures to Guide Intervention and Conversation
Presenter: Lyn Worsley Co - Presenter: Odin Hjemdal  
The use of online, self-report tools to monitor physical fitness has paved the way for similar tools to monitor wellbeing and resilience. An ideal resilience tool would give direct positive feedback; provide ideas for improvement and measure change over time. It would also use validated measures useful for research as well as provide ongoing evaluation tools to monitor the effectiveness of an intervention for large groups of people. The Resilience Report provides a snapshot of the specific resilience characteristics of individuals and provides avenues for intervention and on going support. The online report uses the Resilience Doughnut interactive tool (Worsley, 2010), the Resilience Scale for Adolescents (Hjemdal, Friborg, Stiles, Martinussen, Rosenvinge 2006) and the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (Robert Goodman, 2005) to identify three key elements contributing to resilience and wellbeing. The results highlight strong available resources, five subscales of competencies and protective factors and four subscales of difficulties.The report can be used in organisations to establish the effectiveness of intervention programs and highlight participants who may need extra support. The report can be used as a self-report for individuals who want to self-monitor as well as a group report for coordinators in organisations who want to track the mental wellbeing of their students.The Report has a fun interface promoting interaction, conversation and curiosity and gives practical suggestions of ordinary magic that is already present in their lives.
