Abstract
A review of the literature of risk and resilience demonstrates the important role of risk factors and protective factors in human psychosocial development. Resiliency theory is built around the concept that what is right with an individual is more powerful than what is wrong (Richardson, Neiger, Jensen, & Kumpfer, 1990). This concept has led to the development of Whole Families, a practical model for helping others that is based on resiliency theory. The present study investigates the relationship between risk and protective factors through an exploratory analysis of a Risk and Resiliency Checklist (Verhaagen, 2001). Data were collected from 30 children and adolescents who were outpatient clients at Southeast Psychological Services. lt was hypothesized that a negative relationship would exist between risk and protective factors. Furthermore, the results hold implications for guiding treatment and outcome measurements. However, further analysis of the statistical properties of the Risk and Resiliency scale is necessary.
