In connection with the development of the "Multilayered Social Resilience" Framework, a new assessment scale named the "Resilience Competencies Scale" (RCS) was developed by the Switzerland group. If you are interested in accessing this scale for use in your research, please fill in the Resilience Competencies Scale permission form, and send it back to us. Once we receive this, we will then send you the RCS for you to use. Thank you.
