AbstractEmotional distresses are common in Hong Kong adult population. Previous studies of positive psychology interventions which utilized a strength-based approach suggested its potentials for alleviation of depressive symptoms. However, existing strength assessments shown limits for offering prompt and useful feedback for the planning of positive psychology interventions. Therefore, the Chinese Psychological Resources Questionnaire (CPRQ) was developed as a quick and valid measure of strengths for the purpose. Psychometric properties of CPRQ were examined among 149 service users from 7 wellness centres of a local nongovernment organization. A series of exploratory factor analyses were conducted and resulted in a 12-item questionnaire with a 3-factor model: (1) Cautiousness (α=.79), (2) Interpersonal Strength (α=.71), and (3) Vitality (α=.81). This echoed the same 3-factor model presented by Duan et al. (2012). Concurrent validity was indicated by significant positive correlations with measurements of hope and gratitude and negative correlations with measurements of depression. The results were discussed in terms of implication for applying CPRQ and limitations of the present study.
