Following Volume I, and with the same goal in mind, that is, to contribute to overcome the lack of psychological assessment instruments in Portugal focused on the family, eight instruments are presented to assess resilience and family adaptive processes, addressing emerging stress conditions in normative crisis situations as well as unexpected. Some measures of particular responses of the family system to specific situations of disease, both pediatric and adult complete the contents of this book. As in Volume I, all chapters follow a common structure, defined from the user’s viewpoint, and structured to, first, follow a conceptual logic associated with the relational movements of the family, considering all (group focus) and part (individual focus); on the other hand, the structure (constant) per chapter was weighted to allow a full view and grounded for each instrument, so that it can be used strictly for family researchers from various disciplines which thus will be able to cross them with its specific instruments. We renew the expectation of this work being useful for the reader and for the rigorous development of knowledge in the field of Family studies.
