Sumario:The psychometric properties of the short version of González-Arratia’s Resilience Scale for children (GARE14) are examined through two studies. The first one analyzes the three-dimensional structure and internal reliability of a 217 children sample with both genders (122 boys, 95 girls) with an average age of 11.14 (SD = .78). Study 2 presents evidence of theoretical convergence with self-esteem and satisfaction with life, with 121 participants (59 boys, 62 girls) aged 9 to 12 years old (M = 10.60, SD = .67). The configuration is verified by using confirmatory factorial analysis (GFI = .94, AGFI = .91, RMSEA = .046; NFI = .79, TLI = .90, CFI = .92). A significant positive association between the evaluated variables, and higher scores in girls than in boys are reported. This scale is useful for the measurement of resilience in children, for academic contexts and for research purposes.
