LOPES, Vanessa Rodrigues  e  MARTINS, Maria do Carmo Fernandes. Factorial validation and adaptation of the connor-davidson resilience scale (CD-RISC-10) for brazilians. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.2, pp. 36-50. ISSN 1984-6657.

Resilience is defined as an individual's ability to recover from adversities and to adapt positively in tense and stressful situations. Researchers of the relationship between individual, organization, and work have turned their attention to this phenomenon in order to attempt to clarify its antecedents and effects in the organizational context. Studies regarding this subject are beginning to appear, and, in view of the diversity and disagreement over the concept, there is confusion and divergence on the way to evaluate it. Thus, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the psychometric characteristics of a Brazilian version of the CD-RISC-10 - a widely used measure in international studies. 463 people, on average 28 years of age (SD = 9,7) and mostly high school graduates, took part in this study. Exploratory factor analysis confirmed a one-factor structure with the ten scale items and a Cronbach's alpha of 0.82. This indicates that the CD-RISC-10 is a promising measure for evaluating levels of resilience, and an available tool for improving the investigation of this phenomenon. However, it is important to emphasize the need for further studies regarding validity, reliability, and standardization in diverse samples.
