Psychological Trait Resilience Within Ecological Systems Theory: The Resilient Systems Scales

John Maltby, Liz Day, Heather D. Flowe, Panos Vostanis, Sally Chivers
2017 Journal of Personality Assessment  
The current project describes the development of the Resilient Systems Scales to address conceptual and methodological ambiguities in assessing the ecological systems model of resilience.  ...  Across a number of samples (total n = 986), our findings suggest that the Resilient Systems Scales show equivalence to a previously reported assessment (Maltby, Day,  ...  We largely based this on the adaptive assumptions underpinning resilient systems theory and the idea that resilience should be associated with a number of adaptive expressions of cognitive, social, and  ...
