SOARES, Ana; PAIS-RIBEIRO, José L.  e  SILVA, Isabel. Portuguese Adaptation of the Thriving in Adolescence Scale. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.4, pp. 371-381. ISSN 1677-0471.

In the field of Positive Adolescent Development research focuses on what defines not only normal or adequate development but optimal development for Thriving. The concept encompasses Thriving indicators that represent a dynamic and bi-directional interplay over time between a young person and the developmental contexts, reflecting both a point-in-time status as well as a developmental process. This study aimed to adapt the Thriving in Adolescence Scale to the Portuguese population. A convenience sample consisted of 503 students aged between 13 and 19 years (M=15.92; SD=1.17), with 63% females. Originally developed from the perspective of the formative model, the Thriving Scale includes seven items. The exploration of psychometric properties, using nomological network analysis, showed a multidimensional scale with adequate metric properties. The use of this instrument is suggested for the understanding of successful development in adolescence.
