General Description

The RS6 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 RS6 showed a strong correlation with the RS13 (r=.96; p<.01), as well as a strong

corrected correlation (r=.90) with this version. Accordingly, the correlations it presented with

the other instruments were as expected, demonstrating convergent validity.
