||Resiliency Scales for Children and Adolescents – A Profile of Personal Strengths was developed to measure the personal attributes in adolescents that are critical for resiliency. The RSCA are comprised of three self-report scales in a Combination Booklet: the Sense of Mastery (MAS) scale, composed of 20 items, the Sense of Relatedness (REL) scale, composed of 24 items, and the Emotional Reactivity (REA) scale, composed of 20 items. While acknowledging the critical importance of environmental forces, the scales are predicated on the knowledge that what children bring to their environments is also highly influential for their overall well-being. The focus here, therefore, is on the types of personal attributes that generally allow some children to do better than others in the face of adversities.
- Sense of Mastery Scale: Optimism, self-efficacy, adaptability
- Sense of Relatedness Scale: Trust, support, comfort, tolerance
- Emotional Reactivity Scale: Sensitivity, recovery, impairment
