Adolescent Resilience Questionnaire Revised (ARQ)

The revised Adolescent Resilience Questionnaire comprises 93 items and 12 scales measuring resilience factors in the domains of self, family, peer, school and community. In this context, examination of resilience factors in each nested level is required to develop a comprehensive measure. Salient adolescent ecological ‘levels’ have been identified as the domains of individual, family, peers, school and community.The ARQ is a pen and paper questionnaire with scales in five domains: individual, family, peers, school and community. Items comprise statements with a five point Likert response scale labelled: 1 Never, 2 Not often, 3 Sometimes, 4 Most of the time and 5 All the time.
