This study examines teen dating violence (TDV) among adolescent sexual minority (SM) populations using the Conflict in Adolescent Dating Relationships Inventory (CADRI) victimization scale.
The Conflict in Adolescent Dating Relationships Inventory (CADRI) victimization scale is a widely used multidimensional measure for assessing teen dating violence (TDV) whose factor structure has recently been shown to be invariant across sex, race/ethnicity, and time. Findings confirm the factorial invariance of a popular TDV measure being suitable for use among sexual minority youth, wherein rates of victimization are generally higher. This study extends previous work by assessing the measurement invariance of the CADRI for SM high school students across three waves. While this work has confirmed that the measurement of the CADRI functions similarly across sex, race/ethnicity, and time, it is not known whether the factor structure is invariant across sexual minority (lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer; SM) and heterosexual adolescents. The present study uses a longitudinal multigroup confirmatory factor analysis using diagonally weighted least squares to assess factorial invariance of the CADRI across SM adolescents using three waves of data. Factorial measurement invariance across groups (SM and heterosexual youth) and across time was found for the CADRI. (Published Abstract Provided)
