The Intimate Violence Responsibility Scale (IVRS) is developed through a series of scale development processes. The IVRS is factor analyzed to determine the dimensions of the instrument. The confirmed four factors (minimization, denial, proximal blame, and distal blame) of the IVRS are supported by the theoretical background (CECEVIM batterer intervention model and ecological perspectives). Psychometric properties of the IVRS are reported. The relationship between cognition (attitudes) and violent behavior is assessed during scale validation.
