General Description

The RS9 measures the degree of individual resilience in adults. It consists of 9 items that are rated on a seven-point Likert type format ranging from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 7 (Strongly Agree).

The scale’s internal consistency was good (.91), and the composite reliability presented a good value (.93), as did the temporal stability.

The correlations with the other constructs (stress and psychopathologic symptoms) were negative and significant, and because the correlation with the longer version of the scale was high and significant (r =.98, p<.001), as the corrected correlation (r =.92).
