Connor, Kathryn, M. (2006) Assessment of resilience in the aftermath of trauma, The Journal of clinical psychiatry, 67 (Suppl 2) 46-49.

Resilience is a crucial component in determining the way in which individuals react to and deal with stress. A broad range of features is associated with resilience; these features relate to the strengths and positive aspects of an individual’s mental state. In patients with posttraumatic stress disorder, resilience can be used as a measure of treatment outcome, with improved resilience increasing the likelihood of a favorable outcome. Resilience can be monitored using the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale, and perceived vulnerability to the effects of stress can be monitored with the Sheehan Stress Vulnerability Scale. Both scales are well validated, self-rated, easy to use, and easily translatable. Within a short period of time, nonspecialists can be taught to use these in the field.
