Abstract [en]

Culture and context are important for children's development, affecting, inter alia, resilience. The main aim of our research was to find out if resilience among schoolaged children aged 10-12 differs between three countries – Croatia, Sweden and Portugal. The participants were 750 pupils from Croatian, Swedish and Portuguese schools, 54.5% boys and 45.5% girls. The instrument used was the Child and Youth Resilience Measure-28 (CYRM-28). Descriptive statistics were computed, and one-way between--groups ANOVAs were performed. The CYRM total score, as well as the item scores, were high. Both differences and similarities between the three countries were found. Sweden and Portugal share the highest number of non-significant comparisons, followed by Croatia and Sweden. Croatia and Portugal have the least between-pair similarities. The results are discussed in the context of countries' needs for education for resilience and application of the resilience curriculum (RESCUR).

Abstract [hr]

Kultura i kontekst važni su za dječji razvoj te utječu, između ostalog, i na otpornost. Glavni cilj našeg istraživanja bio je provjeriti postoje li razlike u otpornosti školske djece od 10 do 12 godina između triju zemalja – Hrvatske, Švedske i Portugala. Ispitanici su bili učenici (N = 750) iz hrvatskih, švedskih i portugalskih škola, 54,5 % dječaka i 45,5 % djevojčica. Primijenjen je upitnik otpornosti Child and Youth Resilience Measure, CYRM-28. Provedene su deskriptivna analiza podataka i jednosmjerna analiza varijance. Ukupan rezultat, kao i rezultati na pojedinim česticama CYRM-28, visoki su. Nađene su i razlike i sličnosti između triju zemalja. Švedska i Portugal imaju najviše sličnosti, a zatim Hrvatska i Švedska. Hrvatska i Portugal imaju najmanje sličnosti kad se gledaju parovi zemalja. O rezultatima se raspravlja u kontekstu potreba zemalja za obrazovanjem za otpornost i primjenom kurikula otpornosti.
