A multidimensional definition of partner abuse: Development and preliminary validation of the Composite Abuse Scale
Hegarty, Kelsey, Sheehan, Mary C., & Schonfeld, Cynthia C. (1999) A multidimensional definition of partner abuse: Development and preliminary validation of the Composite Abuse Scale. Journal of Family Violence, 14(4), pp. 399-415.
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.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
