TLA Survey

TLA Teacher interviews

Two teachers were interviewed for each TLA participant at both the beginning and end of the year. Interviews were semi-structured using the questions listed below in the “TLA-Participant Teacher Interview Guide”. Interviews were recorded, then later transcribed and analyzed as previously described.

The Child/Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM)

The Child/Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM) is a validated self-report measure that assesses resources available to youth that may bolster their resiliency. It has been found to have good reliability and validity with youth (Liebenberg et al, 2012). The CYRM assesses resilience-related resources in 3 broad areas: Individual Capacities/Resources (including personal and social skills and peer support), Relationships with Primary Caregivers (including physical and psychological caregiving), and Contextual Factors Facilitating a Sense of Belonging (including spiritual, educational, and cultural factors).

The CYRM can be freely accessed on the internet.
