The CYRM is available to researchers at no cost. Please fill in the form on this page to receive instant access the CYRM. There is no review process, we just keep your information for our files.
The CYRM is a measure which is meant to be directly summed - the score is then used to compare the children in the sample on their levels of resilience. We have found that the higher the score, the more these resilience components are present in the lives of participants.
Administration of the CYRM-26 or CYRM-28 takes approximately 20 minutes, but researchers should be prepared that it may take more time when participants require more clarification.
Questions on the CYRM can be changed and adapted, but researchers should note that the validation of the particular sub-scale would be lost. Nevertheless, the measure is still useful if used in relation to risk and outcome measures.
As of yet, no sub-scales have been identified for the CYRM-12.
The Resilience Research Centre does not officially offer the CYRM in any language other than English, but some users have translated it into the following languages: English, Arabic, Chinese, French, Hindi, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish (Puerto Rico), Spanish (Spain), and Urdu. Although we cannot guarantee the accuracy of any research done using a translated version, we provide these translations on our download page as reference.
Staff at the RRC are committed to offering tools and services for research and evaluation projects concerned with the well-being of children, youth, and families. Although the CYRM will always be available to researchers at no cost, we are no longer able to offer consultation for free. Due to the high volume of requests, any further help will now be offered for a fee in order to recover the cost of staff time.
