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.
