Items include statements such as "If I had to list everything I felt grateful for, it would be a very long list" and "I am grateful to a wide variety of people." The GQ-6 has demonstrated adequate internal consistency and validity when correlated with other measures of gratitude (Froh
et al., 2011).
The potential role of gratitude as a resilience factor is now being studied in educational environments (Bird & Maride, 2012; Froh
, Bono, & Emmons, 2010; Ma, Kibler, & Sly, 2013), work-related contexts (Lanham, Rye, Rimsky, & Weill, 2012), health psychology (Ruini & Vescovelli, 2013), and clinical psychology (Huffman et al., 2014; Nelson, 2009).

Tambien, se encontraron relaciones significativas entre la gratitud y la satisfaccion con la experiencia escolar (Froh
, Sefick & Emmons, 2008), y entre la valentia y la recuperacion de enfermedades fisicas y de trastornos psicologicos (Peterson, Park, & Seligman, 2005).
For example, studies conducted by Kashdan, Mishra, Breen and Froh
(2009) inform that women consider the expression of gratitude as less complex, conflicting, uncertain, and more interesting and exciting than men.
Fundamentally, these criticisms focus on the following points: 1) many contents now claimed by positive psychology have been developed in previous decades by traditional psychology (Froh
, 2004; Held, 2002; Lazarus, 2003; Linley et al., 2006; Ryff, 2003); 2) lack of scientific quality in positive psychology.
