The data were collected between October 2019 and March 2020. Anyone could participate in the study. Respondents filled out the questionnaires either in paper form or on Google Forms. The data were collected in person by the researchers.

Statistical methods

Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), Cronbach's alpha, Spearman rank correlation coefficient, Jonckheere's trend test, Mann–Whitney U test. Calculations were made using SPSS 23 and AMOS 23.

Results

Using EFA and CFA, a four-factor structure of the technique was obtained, including subscales: "Family communication and connectedness", "Positive outlook and problem solving", "Acceptance and flexibility", "Social resources". The subscales have good internal consistency. Correlations of subscales of this technique with components of individual resilience, indicators of mutual adaptation in a couple and family resources were established. The authors came to a conclusion about the sufficient validity and reliability of the technique, which can be used in solving research and practical tasks.
