%X In 2001, Hjemdal, Friborg, Martinussen, and Rosenvinge developed, in Norway, a questionnaire to assess resilience, the Resilience Scale for Adults (RSA). This scale has been adjusted through the years, and a final version comprising 33 items organized in six factors was achieved. In this chapter we present the adaptation and validation studies of the European Portuguese version of the RSA. In a validation sample of participants of the general population (N = 200), the exploratory factor analysis (EFA) suggested a five-factor model, which did not replicate the original factor solution. The confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), in a second sample (N = 304), allowed confirming the five-factor model identified in the EFA, as well as the original six-factor model. The original model showed however better adjustment indices and therefore seems to be a valid option in Portugal. Accordingly, in the European Portuguese version of the RSA we opted for the original six-factor model. This model shows adequate values of internal consistency for the total scale, as well as for most factors, presenting itself as a useful scale to assess resilience factors. The obtained results are discussed in relation to the utility of the RSA for both research and clinical practice.
