OBJECTIVES: This article details the reduction of the Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM) from a 28-item to a 12-item measure. The CYRM-28 is a measure of youth resilience that accounts for cultural and contextual diversity across youth populations. A reduced version of the CYRM is better suited to inclusion in omnibus surveys.METHODS: Data from two samples of youth from Atlantic Canada are included in the analysis: a) a sample of multiple-service-using youth (n=122; mean age = 18); b) a… Expand

Because resilience occurs even when risk factors are plentiful, greater emphasis needs to be placed on the role social and physical ecologies play in positive developmental outcomes when individuals encounter significant amounts of stress. Expand
Implications of Resilience Concepts for Scientific Understanding

Five main implications stem from the research to date: resistance to hazards may derive from controlled exposure to risk (rather than its avoidance), and resilience may be constrained by biological programming or damaging effects of stress/adversity on neural structures. Expand
