ACEs are not destiny. Take the Resilience Survey to learn more.
The Devereux Adult Resilience Survey (DARS) asks 23 questions about the strength in four areas of your life now – relationships, internal beliefs, initiative, and self-control.
As you respond to this survey, you will be answering what is true for you today. Check “Yes” if the statement is completely true now, “Sometimes” if it is sometimes true now, and “Not yet” if you are still working on it or if it hasn’t yet been achieved.
This information can be used to help you build on your areas of strength so that you can continue to grow in your own personal resilience, coping with adversity and the stresses of daily life.
At the end of the survey, you will have the opportunity to have the questions and answers emailed to you with a list of online resources for you to access. You can skip that step if you’d like and view your results immediately. From there, you can learn more about ACEs and resilience in The Basics or you can start your journey as a Resilience Champion (which includes The Basics).
