    • Projects (3)


      The Resilience Research Centre has carried out numerous local, national and international evaluations of programs concerned with well-being of children, youth, and families. 

      Our evaluations are tailored to the needs of the program but tend to use mixed methods and a pre-, mid-, post- test design. We work closely with our partner to ensure the evaluation meets their needs and the needs of their funders and that it is a feasible evaluation.

      We also try to build capacity within the organization by training them to administer the evaluation tools and working together throughout the entire evaluation process, from the logic model to report writing.

      The RRC has developed some research tools that
      you can view and adapt for your own research.


      Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM)

      The CYRM-28 measures overall resilience, as well as three subcategories that we have found to influence resilience processes; individual traits, relationship to caregiver(s), and contextual factors that facilitate a sense of belonging.

      Visual Elicitation Methods

      The RRC often integrates visual elicitation methods into research projects using video and photo data (see Negotiating Resilience and Spaces and Places). In our experience, using these methods allows youth to reflect on the research topic before going into an interview. It also gives them control over the interview process allowing youth to introduce topics of importance.

      Interview Guide

      The following interview guide was initially designed to support development of the Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM). It has subsequently been used in other studies done by the RRC with youth facing significant levels of risk around the world to better understand what resilience processes look like across cultures and contexts.

      Using a Timeline

      When exploring life histories, researchers at the RRC use a timeline to guide interviews and act as a prompt for youth and to help them feel in more control over the interview process,
