The current paper introduces results of adaptation of the Family Resilience Assessment Scale (FRAS) by M. Sixbey. The factor structure, reliability and validity of the scale were identified, as well as the normative measures for the Russian sample. A total of 331 respondents (61.6% of females) between the ages of 18 and 65 years (M=33.5, SD =10.8) participated in the study. In order to confirm construct validity, we used the Dyadic Adjustment Scale, the Family Resource Test II, and the Human Resilience test (all in Russian). Exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis revealed four-factor structure of the FRAS consisting of the following subscales: "family communication and connectedness", "positive outlook and problem solving", "acceptance and flexibility", "social resources". Good internal consistency was obtained for all the subscales. These subscales were found to correlate with the components of individual vitality, indicators of mutual adaptation in a couple and family resources. The obtained results demonstrate sufficient validity and reliability of the scale. Thus, the FRAS is suggested for further research and practical application.

Keywords: family resilience assessment scale, family resilience, resilience, family resources, diagnostic, adaptation, validity, reliability
