Research Questions: The research evaluated, in an adult’s sample, the unidimensionality factor structure proposed by original authors, and confirmed by Pinheiro and Matos (2013) and Oliveira, Matos, Pinheiro and Oliveira (2015).
Purpose of the Study: This study aims to explore the construct validity of the RS-25 scale for adults and its reliability and validity.
Research Methods: The sample consisted of 400 parents, mostly female, who participated in a s0tudy about prevention of adolescent depression (PTDC/MHC-PCL/4824/2012). Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor analyses were performed to study the factorial structure of the RS25. Dimensionality, reliability and validity were studied.
Findings: As expected the results confirm the good psychometric characteristics and the factor structure obtained in previous studies with Portuguese adolescents, and with adults by Wagnild and Young (1993).
Conclusions: Based on psychometrics properties obtained, our study supports the usefulness of the RS25 (Portuguese long form) to assess resilience in the Portuguese adult population. Further, this scale will be very useful to study the relationships of levels of parent’s resilience and adolescents’ resilience with depressive symptoms.

Title: The Impact of Neoliberal Educational Reforms on Teachers Learning Experiences
Author(s): Kristi Mets*, Inge Timoštšuk, Aino Ugaste
Full Text 15
Problem Statement: Rapid changes in education can cause frictions in society, in schools and universities influencing teachers´ learning. Inconsistent learning experiences affect beginning teacher´ commitment to the profession and professional identity.
Research Questions: 1) How teachers beginning their work during neoliberal reforms describe learning 2) How committed are they to the teaching profession and what domains of professional identity they developed most
Purpose of the Study: The aim of the study is to describe teachers learning experiences starting from neoliberal educational reform In Estonia. Better understanding of the impact of reform on teachers learning helps to understand more critical aspects of professional identity influenced by transition from totalitarian system to liberal one.
Research Methods: Data was collected for 15 Estonian teachers` (graduated in 1990-1995). Semi-structured interview, based on concept of social learning was used. In first step data was analysed by components of social learning: community, practice, belonging, identity (Wenger, 2004). In the second step belonging and identity sub-categories were analysed by critical society-related factors, identified based on theoretical frame of the study.
Findings: Teachers describe their learning as continuous process where experiences in school context and contacts within local teaching community are more important than belonging to other social groups. The role of professional identity building was marginal. However teachers’ commitment to the profession was high. The social changes were reflected more in changes of teaching related routines and less in identity.
Conclusions: Although rapid changes in society cause frictions in education, those changes are not reflected in teachers´ learning experiences as strong as expected. The neoliberal social changes are reflected in personal meaning of teaching and in changes of everyday routines but support of colleagues helped to cope with changes and the personal context of learning eclipsed social context of learning.
