The article investigates the reliability and validity of the Resilience and Youth Development Module ((RYDM) in Turkish culture. Study sample comprised of 872 eight-grade students entered in six low socioeconomic status (SES) inner-city public elementary schools in Ankara, Turkey. It was found that RYMD can be applied in asset and process concentrated studies in Turkey to measure the external and internal protective factors that are significant in the development of resilience. Moreover, RYMD can be a useful tool to investigate both external and internal protective factors that function as buffers against resilience studies in Turkey.
