Abstract

The Composite Abuse Scale's development and initial validation survey is presented in this article. The items of the Composite Abuse Scale were derived from four other scales: Conflict Tactics Scale, Measure of Wife Abuse, Inventory of Spouse Abuse, and Psychological Maltreatment of Women Inventory. A survey including the items was sent out to all nurses at a large inner city teaching hospital. Factor analysis of responses to the survey revealed Severe Combined Abuse, Emotional Abuse, Physical Abuse, and Harassment. There were 427 participants.
