CYRM Versions

The CYRM was originally designed as a 28 item measure for youth aged 9 to 23 years old. Since its initial validation, the measure has also been adapted into a 26 item version for use with children aged 5 to 9 years old and a 28 item version for use with adults (aged 23 and older). To get parents’ and guardians’ perspectives on the resilience of a young person, we adapted the measure so that it could be filled out by a person knowledgeable about the child.  For all versions of the CYRM (Child, Youth, Adult, and Person Most Knowledgeable [PMK]), a reduced resilience measure consisting of 12 items is available, as well as versions offering either a 5 point response scale or 3 point response scale (for easier reading).  The various CYRM versions available are listed below:
