Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC)

SPARCS Cohort 4

The Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC)* is a 10-item self-report measure used to assess resilience and stress coping.  The CD-RISC is a unidimensional scale, and higher scores indicate higher levels of resilience.

Descriptive Statistics:  Pre- and post-treatment assessment measure means, standard deviations, and standard errors for the CD-RISC are listed in the table below, as well as the range of possible scores for the scale.

CD-RISC Subscales: Descriptive Statistics

Repeated Measures:  Repeated measures analyses (paired samples t-test) were conducted to examine pre-post group mean differences on the CD-RISC. Analyses showed non-statistically significant change in CD-RISC total scores (resilience and stress coping).

CD-RISC Subscales: Paired Sample t-test

CD-RISC Total Scores: Pre-post Treatment Mean Scores

Individual Clinically-Significant Change:

The CD-RISC is not yet validated.  As such, clinical cutoffs are not yet available for analysis of this data.
