The attitudes towards dating violence scales development and initial validation humble dating
The six scales were positively correlated with traditional attitudes toward gender roles and with each other, providing evidence for their construct validity.
Higher scores on the AMDV Scales were related to boys' past use of violence in dating relationships and to their having aggressive friends, supporting their criterion-related validity.

These experiences were pulished in Ann Cameron, Ph. (Psychology) and I were coordinators of the Provincial Strategy Team for Dating Violence Prevention (PST), which we created in February of 2002 and completed its work in December 2006.
