BATISTA, Helder Henrique Viana Santos; NORONHA, Ana Paula Porto  e  QUEIROZ, Lorena Gonçalves. Measures of character strengths for children: integrative review of literature. Contextos Clínic [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.1, pp. 204-227. ISSN 1983-3482.

The objective of the present study was to identify the measures used to evaluate the strengths of character in children up to 12 years of age through an integrative review of literature. The period between 2008 and 2020 was considered and CAPES, ScieLO and Redalyc were the databases used. Nine articles were analyzed, considering year of publication, instruments used, sample characteristics and constructs related to strengths. The years 2013, 2014 and 2015 were the ones with highest number of publications. The samples of the analyzed studies were composed by students. The variable associated with the school context and constructs such as satisfaction with life and optimism were more frequently associated with character strengths. In addition to being the most widely used instrument, Values in Action-Youth seems to be the most accepted instrument for assessing strengths in children. It is concluded that the school context has been considered an important space for the development of children's personal strengths, health preservation and coping with life problems.
