Description

The present data article presents a dataset about resilience and trauma-related outcomes in a group of Lithuanian children victims of violence, who took part in a resilience-focused therapy - the Assisted Resilience Approach Therapy (ARAT). The Child Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM-28) and the Trauma Symptom Checklist for Children (TSCC) were administered before and at the end of the treatment. Participants were 65 children (mean age = 13.03; range = 9-17) victims of different types of violence and neglect, referred to 25 day-care centers across Lithuania specialized in child violence. A structural equation modelling (SEM) was performed to test direct relationship between the resilience increase over the treatment and the trauma-related outcomes at the end of it, by controlling the direct effect of trauma-related symptoms at the baseline on the outcomes.
