The Resilience Scale
The Resilience Scale is considered to be the most accurate instrument currently available to measure resilience. Other instruments, based on one theory or another, claim to measure something that they call resilience. On the other hand, the Resilience Scale is the result of actual interviews with real people about their experience in successfully dealing with adversity in life. Thus the Resilience Scale provides the most accurate measurement available for this important psychological factor. This is why for almost two decades the Resilience Scale has received strong reliability and validity support from scientific research.
