Student Researchers: Chen Zong

The purpose of this study was to validate an original and innovative survey focused on both teens’ personal beliefs and how they perceived their peers’ beliefs regarding relationship abuse. Two confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) models were examined with 591 high school students’ responses: The first CFA model was created based on the exploratory factor analysis (EFA) results, and the second CFA model was created based on the theoretically hypothesized model of six types of relationship abuse.
