Although interactions within veterans’ families may support or inhibit resilient coping to stress and trauma across the deployment cycle, research on family resilience has been hampered by the lack of a brief assessment. Using a three-stage mixed method study, we developed and conducted preliminary validation of a measure of family resilience tailored for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans (IAVs), the Family Resilience Scale for Veterans (FRS-V), which was field-tested using a survey of 151 IAVs. Our findings indicate the resulting six-item measure shows strong initial reliability and validity and supports the application of existing models of family resilience in this population.
