A strengths-based assessment of resiliency in adolescence
By [posts-author-link] on [date]
Authors Donnon & Hammond (2007) offer an assessment of the psychometric properties of the self-reported Youth Resiliency: Assessing Developmental Strengths Questionnaire. This article focuses on the value of measures that emphasize a strengths-based approach, rather than the frequently-used problem-based approach to at-risk behaviour. In examining the psychometric properties of this strengths-based questionnaire, the authors present a potential framework for the study of the construct of resiliency in adolescence.
This article offers insight into how resiliency in adolescence can be measured, and could be utilized as a tool for researchers or educators.
