Abstract: Two studies were conducted to provide initial data on psychometric properties of the French Canadian version of the Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM)-28. The first study examined the factorial structure of the French CYRM-28, its retest reliability, its construct validity, and potential problems with floor and ceiling effects. The second study assessed the internal consistency of the scores, the scales’ construct validity, and potential problems with floor and ceiling effects. The findings from the first study support the construct validity of the CYRM-28, and validate the re-test reliability of the measure. In addition, the findings indicate no problems with floor or ceiling effects with the CYRM-28 total score. The findings from the second study were similar to those of study 1, indicating no problems with the floor to ceiling effects, and internal consistency of the CYRM-28 components and total score. These findings support the reliability and validity of the French version of the CYRM-28. Data for the two studies were obtained from 2 samples of youth, n=589 in study 1 and n=246 in study 2, who completed the French CYRM-28 and measures of self-esteem and self-acceptance/mindfulness. Participants in the second study also completed measures evaluating their sense of empowerment. Study strength and limitations are discussed. Tables and references
